Parkersburg, W.VA. (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Plan now to host holiday celebrations for family and friends in a home updated with a new look and improved comfort level. Check out the suggestions below, make your project list, and then pick up tools and accessories at Woodcraft.
“Put safety first,” cautions Scott Phillips, host of "The American Woodshop." “Before you begin your first project, make sure you have eye, ear and breathing protection available and then follow the manufacturer’s directions for all the tools and products you use. Have a first-aid kit and a phone handy, and enlist help for the heavy-duty work.”
Entrance, Windows & Floors – Transform an entrance with a new door or add color and new hardware to an existing one. Install new windows that are attractive, reduce heating and cooling costs, and are easy to maintain. And consider installing a hardwood floor in at least one room – possibly the entryway and/or the living/family room.
Kitchen & Dining Areas – Apply stain or color to kitchen cabinets and replace hinges and pulls or knobs to brighten a “home café.” If cabinets have seen better days, install new ones – either store-bought or custom-built. For a wood table and chairs, consider using a stain or topcoat to enhance the wood’s appearance or to match the color of cabinets.
Shelving & Lighting – Add shelving in unused space to help control clutter (bedroom/bathroom closets) and provide display space for favorite photos and collectibles (living room/ family room/kitchen). Enhance cabinets and furniture with new decorative LED lighting.
Living/Family Room – Arranging furniture into “areas” will allow for varied activities simultaneously, such as conversation and watching events on television or playing games. Use plants, a bookcase or a divider to separate areas. Paint walls, hang pictures or stain wood furniture to add color.
