Whether you're planning on using this holiday weekend to catch up or have friends over for a barbecue, here's a few fast projects that will get your home summer-ready with time this weekend left over to relax.

Picture1. Replace the tile on your patio table for a new look.

If you have a tiled patio set like this one, pop the tiles out and swap them for a fresh pop of color. This makeover was less than $20 and took minutes!


Picture2. Give outdoor furniture a new pop of color.

With a few cans of paint and a quiet afternoon in the sun, you can quickly turn a tired piece into something that makes a big statement like this blue rocker.


Picture3. Paint your outdoor cushions.

That's right! It absolutely works. Choose your favorite color of latex paint and paint your cushions. Your cushions will have a vinyl-like texture after you've painted them that repels water. It's a great, no-sew and inexpensive way to make your cushions last another summer.



Picture4. Repurpose an unused piece into a serving station.

You know that changing table that's stacked with everything but diapers? Use Rustoleum Chalked Paint for a fast makeover that requires no sanding or priming. Within 30 minutes, you could have a fun serving station for your porch or patio!



Picture 5. Repurpose a coffee table into a great picnic space.

A thrifted or unused coffee table is perfect for creating a casual gathering space under a covered porch. Add a fresh pop of color and some floor pillows and you have a fun place to gather for a barbecue!
