3 To Do: Bring new life to old furniture

1. Bring new life to old furniture

Just one piece of painted furniture can add such character to a room and is a manageable one-day project (talk about instant gratification!).

Take stock of dull pieces in your basement or attic and give them new life with a fresh coat of paint. Not committed to painting the whole piece? Consider sprucing up wood furniture with a stripe instead.

2. Mix up mealtime

Mix up your typical mealtime routine and eat outside.

Whether on a blanket picnic-style or at a table under romantic string lights, these best backyard ideas will inspire dining alfresco and more.

3. Organizing, fun? Yes!

For a certain set of humans (you know who you are), cleaning and organizing Marie Kondo-style is as satisfying as it gets.

Organize your kitchen.

Tackle those closets, pantries, drawers, and open shelves, keeping only what you truly need and love.
