We only have one episode left of the McDonald’s Monopoly game scandal documentary on Netflix. We are getting antsy here in Colorado. How are you managing your days? With limited showings this month, I am ready to tackle these 5 home maintenance projects. These projects have on my list for
We all know the home projects that we find every reason not to paint, fix, replace, stain or toss stuff. The ones that we ignore until we decide to list our home and the inspection report (after a signed offer) follows with a punch list of repairs?
Well, these projects work for those of us with no plans to move but getting antsy with our recent staycation status.
I talked about these ten things to do now for spring cleaning or a potential move. Every time George ran up or down the stairs he ended up with the newel post in his hand. And, equal amounts of frustration.
You know the projects I am talking about, right? Remember George Bailey’s broken newel post?
Home Maintenance Projects
I wonder if George Bailey thought about staining or painting his staircase once he got the bank situation figured out?
On a side note; Where do you weigh in on stain vs. painted staircases? Asking for a friend.
Maybe this weekend is a great time to sort through the dozens of paint cans in the garage. Can you imagine what we could do with the space created if we stored the 1/12 of the remaining paint in mason jars?
Question? When is the last time we replaced our furnace filters?
Fun fact: The first thing I ordered on Amazon was a box of furnace filters?
I know right? What does that say about me?
I know it sounds silly, but it was a home maintenance task I tossed to my husband (and then I would remind him to change it a dozen times).
Now I manage the filters! It calms me.
This was the old filter. Ewww……
What about your baseboards? The ones with scuff marks and yellowed edges from where the mop meets the base. Put on a Netflix movie and scoot yourself around the room with a paintbrush and a can of glossy white paint. But, make sure to wipe down the baseboards. I ordered these microfiber towels. I use and toss in the wash. I love them because they work on all surfaces.
Freshly painted baseboards are one of my go-to home improvement projects.
Next up, with Bridget Jones streaming in the background, grab the caulk and caulk the drafty windows and baseboards that need a fresh bead of caulk (after you paint the baseboards)!
What does it say about me that I love a fresh bead of caulk? I have a 1/2 dozen tubes of caulk in this closet.
What home maintenance projects are you contemplating during our staycations? What projects would you add to this list? I think I will need a few more projects for the next week?
