Home Improvement Projects for 4th of July Weekend

While we’d like to believe long holiday weekends are meant to be spent lounging, relaxing and enjoying time with our family, as homeowners we know the work never stops. There are always home improvement projects to be done and a laundry list of chores that never seems to end. Unfortunately, this 4th of July weekend is no different. But, if you must spend your holiday weekend tackling home improvement projects, at least make them fun and immediately enjoyable! Below C&R Building Supply has highlighted 3 indoor and 3 outdoor home improvement projects easy enough to get done (and enjoy) over the long 4th of July Weekend!

6 Indoor & Outdoor Easy Home Improvement Projects

Install New Kitchen Backsplash.
 Installing backsplash is a relatively easy DIY project that can be done any time of the year. However, if you’re hosting a BBQ at your home on 4th of July, your effort may be especially noticed. If you’ve been thinking of upgrading your entire kitchen, C&R Building Supply in Philadelphia has a vast selection of cabinets, countertops, hardware & other custom kitchen supplies.

Paint the Walls. One of the simplest and least time consuming home improvement projects we can recommend. Even if you’re just going over the walls with the same color, it will still elevate the look and feel of your home. C&R Building Supply has a huge selection of paint, as well as all paint supplies, brushes & more!

Replace all Outlet Covers. With freshly painted (especially white) walls, you may notice your outlet covers are a bit dingy. It is extremely cost effective to replace the outlet covers in your home and it takes just minutes.

Now, let’s take the home improvements outside:

Build a Tree Bench. This may seem like an advanced DIY project, but it really only takes a few tools, quality lumber and a couple of hours of time. First, chose the most mature tree in your hard and follow these simple steps to build your own tree bench.
Install Landscape Lighting. Brighten the walkway of your entrance, fences, steps or backyard patio by installing landscape lighting. Chose the style that fits your home and they can be installed in as little as 2 hours. For an upgraded outdoor lighting system, hire a professional electrician to artfully illuminate your outdoor space.

Build a Fire Pit. Probably our favorite DIY home improvement project, an outdoor fire pit can be utilized almost all year long and costs very little to make. Visit our 6 step guide to build your own backyard fire pit.
