Quick weekend DIY projects are fun, satisfying and can make a big difference in your home. Here are 10 of our favourite weekend projects that make a big impact in a small amount of time.


Add a pop of colour and/or pattern to a room with a statement wallpaper design. These days, there are endless wallpaper options. You can even design your own! Wallpaper comes in traditional paste application, but you can also get removable easy-stick products that don’t damage the paint underneath.

Paint the Front Door

Nothing makes your home more welcoming than a freshly painted front door. You can easily add some colour to your curb appeal without too much hassle.

Recaulk Your Bathroom

Caulking might not sound all that exciting, but removing old caulk, cleaning and replacing it every 10 years or so can help to keep your bathroom well-sealed and looking fresh.

Tackle the Garage

Depending on the state of your garage, this might be pushing the limits of a weekend DIY project. But if yours isn’t too much of a mess, you could probably clean, organize, and declutter your garage in a weekend.

Build a Window Box

If you have the tools and woodworking knowledge, building window boxes can be a fun and easy weekend project.

Replace the Kitchen Sink and Taps

As long as you choose a sink that fits in your existing countertop space, replacing your sink and taps can make a big difference in the look of your kitchen without too much work.

Kitchen Backsplash

A new backsplash in the kitchen is a great weekend project. Make sure to plan in advance and have all of your tools and materials on hand so you have enough time to complete the project.

Add crown molding to a room

Crown molding can add an interesting and cozy element to any room. The key to successful installation is precise measurements. A second set of hands is also handy.

Build or alter furniture

Build a pet food station, re-purpose an antique dresser into a bathroom cabinet or repaint your kitchen chairs. These types of projects are easily tackled in a weekend and are incredibly satisfying to complete.

Paint a room

Paint is probably one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make a quick change in your home. Choose a reasonable space to tackle in a weekend so you aren’t left with a job half done. 

Everyone’s idea of a good weekend DIY project is different. If you plan according to your skills and time, you’ll be able to complete your small projects in just a couple of days.
