7 Easy Weekend Home Projects + October Link Party

October already! I’m ready for the change of seasons. We had a chilly couple of days, and then the temperatures have been back up and unseasonably warm, so I’m ready for fall. Bring on the boots and jackets!

As always,  we have a lot of great projects from last month’s party! See them all here, and see our picks for some great weekend projects below. The big projects are great, but there’s something about the satisfaction of a quick weekend project that just makes this DIYers heart happy.

Check a project off your list and enjoy a day off, too -- try one of these easy weekend home projects to make a change in a day or less.
