Quarantine DIY Projects You Can Do In A Weekend

This season of quarantine, fear, and boredom has made me pretty quiet with my blogging. Like many other creatives, I’ve been turning to DIY projects to relieve my stress. Projects done during this season have earned the name “Quarantine DIY Projects” and I wanted to return to blogging to give you some ideas for DIY Projects you can do in a weekend or less.

 

Makeover Furniture

Craving something new? Instead of going to a crowded store, take an old piece of furniture and give it a makeover! Sometimes just a new coat of paint on that old bench will help liven up an entire room. I took these old stools I found at a garage sale a few years back and gave them a fresh coat of paint. This bright turquoise really livens up my living room.

Or give your old furniture and new purpose

This dresser wasn’t needed in my bedroom after decluttering my clothes. So I moved it to my front entry to store shoes and jackets! After giving it a coat of paint to match my stools of course.

Set up a Garden

My main Quarantine DIY project has been my garden. I’ve always wanted to have fresh fruits and vegetables at hand, but the recent scarcity of certain items in the grocery stores really gave me a kick in the booty. Coupled with the extra free time, and I was able to build a fence, some raised beds, and trellises to start my first vegetable garden!

 

Don’t forget the kids!

Kids love to play in the garden too. For toddlers and preschoolers, give them a garden of their own or make some crafts for your garden. I have a whole post on garden projects and activities for toddlers and preschoolers.

Every home garden needs a compost bin!

Here’s a great DIY compost bin

It took awhile for my family to commit to composting. Once we jumped on the train, I was excited to get started, but then realized we would need a space for a compost bin. We carved out the perfect nook in our backyard. This DIY is made with pallets, is 100% upcycled and eco-friendly, and Stepson even helped to get a Boy Scout merit badge. It's the perfect solution for our growing compost and super easy for you to replicate. Check it out!

Want to create something where there was only pieces before? I build a behind the couch bar for my stools and it made me feel so accomplished. Here are some more ideas for easy quarantine DIY projects to build this weekend.
