Family-Friendly Home Improvement Projects

Tags: Home Improvement, Home Ownership

With summer just around the corner, now is a great time to plan some activities you can do with the whole family. Here are four easy home improvement ideas your family may be able to do together!

Paint the Mailbox
Painting the mailbox is an easy project which can add a touch of personality and boost your curb appeal. All you need to complete this project is some newspaper to spread on the ground under your mailbox, a paintbrush, and some paint that will work on your mailbox.

Gardening
Gardening projects can be big or small, but the whole family can enjoy growing something with their own hands. Pick up some pots to grow your own houseplants or create the garden of your dreams in your yard! If you’re looking for easy plants to care for, consider aloe, spider plants, succulents, or pothos.

Fresh Paint
A fresh coat of paint isn’t just great for the mailbox. Liven up any room in your house with a new coat of paint or get wild and change the wall colour altogether. Just make sure you cover your floors and tape off areas you don’t want to be painted before you hand the kids a paintbrush.

Rearrange the Furniture
No one said something a little different has to cost money. Rearranging the furniture in your home is completely free (with the help of some strong friends) and can make you feel like you’ve moved into a whole new house.
