Are you wondering if there are a few simple home-improvement projects you can do yourself in a weekend?

Well, the short answer is yes, according to a magazine article printed in Metro Spring Home’s 2011 issue.

Thanks to advances in technology and the vast amount of step-by-step guides out there, even a novice can take on a do-it-yourself project and complete it in a single weekend.

“Today you’ve got not only an amazing selection of tools to help with every project, but they also shorten the time it used to take to complete the project,” said home expert Danny Lipford, host of the TV show, “Today’s Homeowner,” and radio show, “Homefront,” in Metro Spring Home’s 2011 issue. “When you couple that with all the DIY instructions and programming out there, it’s no wonder we have the confidence to do more on our own.”

Examples of projects suitable for weekend warriors is installing base modeling, wood laminate or even a small outdoor deck.

For those looking to spend less time, why not think about painting your exterior doors or pressure washing your home, said Evan Visser, an architectural illustrator based in Michigan.

On his website, www.exterior-home-improvement-ideas.com, Visser lists tons of do-it-yourself projects for people looking to spruce up their home.

“I like to advise people to pick a paint and change up the color of their front door,” Visser said. “What’s great about this project is the quality of paint you buy nowadays makes the job relatively easy. In most instances, you’ll only need one coat of paint to get the job done.”
