The cold and snow of winter is hopefully in our rear-view mirror. Temps are rising, the birds are singing and the leaves on trees are awakening.  Spring is the perfect time to take a good look around at your home and make a list of things that need freshening up.  We’ve got a couple project ideas you can likely do yourself.

Upsize your windows

Make smaller windows look larger by hanging curtains at ceiling height.  When you purchase new curtains, be sure to choose the 108-inch length. To install the curtain rods, you’ll need a screwdriver set. This 33-piece set from Black Box has high quality tips for any job around your home.

Unclutter your workbench

Organize your workbench in your garage by simply adding a pegboard rack.  Don’t forget to purchase hooks and baskets so that you’ll have places to hang your larger tools and store your extension cords.  To hang the pegboard with ease, you’ll want to use a cordless drill like this one from Black & Decker.  It’s lightweight, powerful and has all the features you need to complete projects.

Crown your cabinets

This project is a little more advanced, but it will bring new life to your kitchen.  Top off your kitchen cabinets with crown molding to give the look of custom casework.  Take it one step further and install new cabinet hardware.  There are hundreds of options for handles and knobs.  We’re sure you’ll find something that fits your kitchen’s vibe.

Makita’s Compound Miter Saw will assist you with many projects including woodworking, deck building, framing and more.

Refresh your outdoor entertainment space

As the weather starts warming up, it’s the perfect time to take a good look at your patio or deck and decide what updates need to be done. Should you add a firepit to warm up late night conversations or maybe some rope lighting under your deck railing for added safety after dark. Maybe it’s time to replace your well-worn outdoor dining table and chairs.
