Home Updates You Can Do Over The Weekend

Weekends are fantastic for laying back and relaxing, getting away on a short adventure or tackling some of those to dos around the house! If your weekend plans involve tackling your home, here are a few affordable home renovations and updates that can be completed quickly but will have a major impact on the look and feel of your home.

5 Home Painting Hacks

A Little Paint – While painting your entire home is probably too big of a job for a single weekend, a fresh coat of paint in key places can update the feel of your home very quickly. Some great examples include your front door, a feature wall in your home or a piece of outdoor furniture that needs a facelift.

Editor’s Favorites, Spring 2019

Accessorize – Much like adding jewelry can take an outfit from simple to stunning, hardware and light fixtures can make all the difference in a room. If your cabinetry is in good shape, simply swapping out the hardware for a more modern style can really freshen up the room. Cabinet hardware, light fixtures, door handles and other hardware are easy to update with huge impact.

Linen Closet Organization Hacks

Get Organized – Well planned organization can make a huge difference in both the look and function of a room. This might mean adding cabinets and shelving to organize your garage or basement storage areas. Or, perhaps installing a closet organization system in the main bedrooms to improve use of space is on your list. There are many systems available that you can customize yourself to create the organization system that fits your needs.

Essentials for Outdoor Living

Move Outside – Prepare for the coming summer months by setting up an outdoor living space for yourself. This might include adding potted plants, planning out the living space and purchasing furniture to meet your needs, adding landscape lighting to improve the look and function of your outdoor space or repairing and refinishing an existing deck! You’ll end up with a beautiful space that you will enjoy for many weekends to come.

From updates big and small, or even just funding a weekend away, a home equity loan can be a quick and easy way to access the equity in your home, allowing you the extra funds needed to complete your projects and update the look and feel of your home!

In a previous Instagram post (see below), Irvin, 53, explained that he lost his voice during the Cowboys’ 13-10 victory over the Saints on Nov. 29.

“I was so elated and hyped I lost my voice and the problem persisted for almost 2 months,” Irvin wrote. “After visiting some of the best throat doctors they thought it to be wise to take a deeper look at the situation.”

He went on to share that the illness runs in his family and confessed that he was “terrified” to suffer the same fate as his father. Irvin requested prayers as he anxiously awaited results of the tests.

“I am asking all who will. Could you please send up a prayer to help my family and I deal with whatever the results may be? Thanks for your thoughts and prayers in advance,” he said.

“My Faith tells me whenever you face great fear you go to your greatness power,” he wrote. “Mine is God. I am asking all who will. Could you please send up a prayer to help my family and I deal with whatever the results may be? Thanks for your thoughts and prayers in advance.”

In Sunday’s post, Irvin noted, “It is impossible to express my family and my appreciation for the overwhelming out pour of love, support and prayers,” he said. “I was on my threshing floor dealing with the stronghold of fear. You all covered and encourage me… To God be the Glory.”

‪Spent Sun & Mon in LA at UCLA medical Health (Ronald Reagan Hospital) doing health test. I would not usually do this but this I need to share. Growing up in the ghetto of Ft Lauderdale the one thing you have to conquer to get out is FEAR. I did! As a football player the no fear gift served me well as a blessing and an asset on the field but sometimes off the field it’s been a curse and a liability. This past football season after the @dallascowboys beat the @Saints i was so elated and hyped I lost my voice and the problem persisted for almost 2months. After visiting some of the best throat Doctors they thought it to be wise to take a deeper look at the situation. So we schedule and performed a throat biopsy. To give background I share with you that I loss my father at the young age of 51. He had throat cancer. This daemon has chased and vexed me deep in my spirit all my life. So saying I am afraid this time is a big big understatement. I AM TERRIFIED!! My Faith tells me whenever you face great fear you go to your greatness power. Mine is God. I am asking all who will. Could you please send up a prayer to help my family and I deal with whatever the results may be? Thanks for your thoughts and prayers in advance🙏🏾🙏🏾I will continue to pray for your fams protection and prosperity as well. May God Bless us all 🙏🏾🙏🏾

Stylish Updates for Your Basement Ceiling

Drop ceilings have been the mainstay of basement ceiling treatments for decades but they don’t have to be plain or boring. A wood-look plank ceiling is a great choice, adding visual interest and style to the space. If you already have a 15/16 inch drop ceiling in place, Armstrong offers WoodHaven planks with Easy Up clips so you can quickly install the planks right over your existing grid! If your ceiling is unfinished, boards can be installed using furring strips on the joists or use the Easy Up track and clip system to maximize ceiling height.

For a pulled together look, install WoodHaven planks directly onto your wall to create wainscotting or an accent wall that matches your basement ceiling!

While white may help brighten up a dark basement, combining a natural wood color like WoodHaven’s Bamboo with rich, natural colors and great lighting creates a cozy and welcoming feel!

For a more dramatic, traditional look, combine stone veneer walls with metallic ceiling panels. Metallaire panels, like the ones shown here, can be installed into your existing 15/16 drop ceiling grid as well! – Armstrong Ceilings, www.ceilings.com/canada
