New Year, New Space
You've already set your standard New Year's resolutions to take better care of yourself or to spend more time with those you love. Something about the start of a new year is invigorating and motivating. It's a chance to change the things we grew complacent with over the past year and kept putting off.
Why not take that new determination and energy and put it into your home? Think about the projects you've been longing to do, and see which ones are realistic, and do them this year. The dreary winter weather already has you cooped up in the house, walk around and take note of the little things you want to do, or if you're ambitious pick a big project.
DIY projects are a great way to update your home, and to pass a chilly winter weekend. Making just one small change to your space can help improve your mood when you're there. If you hate the curtains in your kitchen, find a piece of fabric you love, and an online curtain tutorial. On top of getting those improvements and updates done, you' can be proud of the fact that you did it yourself. Your family and friends will be impressed and inspired.
