Make a Labeled Storage Boxes

 

If you've got some paperwork, knick knacks, and other loose items that are in need of some organization, start off your weekend by crafting these bright storage boxes to house all your items in need of a home. Labels on the boxes make it super easy to identify what each container is for, and the cute look of the boxes makes them as much an addition to your décor as they are functional solutions to your clutter problems.

Wallpaper Your Stairs

 

Decorating projects are usually focused on the same areas of the home – the walls, the tables, the windows, etc. Shake things up a bit by carving out time in your weekend to tackle a décor project that spruces up a part of the home that's not typically dressed up: the stairs. A little bit of wallpaper goes a long way, and just adding a bit to the front of your stairs is a quick and easy way to put an unexpected pop of color in your home.

Clean Your Shower Curtain Liner

But since the shower liner is susceptible to mold because of water residue, it's important to take the time to clean it from top to bottom every now and then – and what better time to start than this weekend?
