If you’ve been dying to tackle some DIY home projects but don’t think you have the time, we’re proving you wrong with three projects you could start and finish before this Monday!

Project No. 1: Make Your Own Mirror

Want a chabby chic mirror but don’t want to pay the big price tag? Genevieve shows you how to make your own! Just find a frame (often you can find them super cheap or free at flea markets, thrift stores or salvage yards) and use industrial-style glue to attach a plain unframed mirror, which can be purchased at any home store.

Project No. 2: Reclaimed Wood Accent Wall

Genevieve shows you how you can use a mish mash of different style wood planks to create a one-of-a-kid accent wall. Just nail the boards on the wall, and use leftover pieces to create shelves. You can create a completely unique design feature in a day!

Bonus: This would also make a great headboard project.

Project No. 3: Give Your Stairs a Boost

When people think of making over their homes, they don’t think of the stairs, but there’s a lot of opportunity there, according to Genevieve. She shows you how to make decorative features for your stairs using super-durable marine paint.

So get to it weekend warriors! The clock is ticking.
