Small Home Improvement Projects for the Labor Day Weekend

by Hickerson Brothers on September 1, 2017

Curious to find an activity for Labor Day weekend? We may have some ideas for you! With the extended weekend right around the corner, what better way to spend it than doing some small home improvement projects. Three days give you plenty of time to perform small home improvement projects while still leaving you time to relax. Give a little labor during Labor Day, and you’ll have peace of mind for the rest of the year.


We at Hickerson Brothers know our Virginia homeowners are looking to maintain the quality of their home, even during Labor Day weekend. With our years of experience in home electrical services, we have gathered some small home improvement projects for the Labor Day weekend.


Bedroom Organization

  • How tidy is your bedroom, and how often do you think about reorganizing it?
  • Tidy up your bedroom and give the area some much needed space.
  • Clear out all the clothes and trash on the floor, and organize your desk, shelf, and dresser.
  • While you’re at it, inspect your bed to see how your mattress and sheets are holding up.
  • Consider buying compact storage that will fit under the bed to neatly pack away all the excess.
  • Buy a hanging shoe tree for your closet door – and use the extra space for more storage.

Plant a Small Garden

  • What better way to improve your home than to give it life via a nice garden?
  • Vegetables such as sweet corn, jalapenos, or tomatoes are easy to grow and not only add a unique accent to your home, they are also edible.
  • Grow your own herbs and spices as well, filling up your garden with basil, cilantro, mint, and much more.
  • Add a small garden fence to keep out the critters. You can buy a variety of fence designs from the local home and garden store.

Add Wall-Mounted Hooks

  • If you have several coats, bags, hats and other everyday accessories scattered about on furniture, then adding wall mounted hooks can help clear out more clutter.
  • Make sure to install the wall-mounted hooks on a stud, or use plastic anchors to prevent drywall damage.
  • If adding hooks to your walls is not an option, consider buying a hat rack or storage bench for the hallway or entryway.

Hide and Organize Your Wires

  • Organize those tangled wires and hide them to give a better look to your home.
  • You can buy cable organizer boxes and bags from department stores and online.
  • You can also purchase labels to put on your wiring for easy identification.
  • If wire is running throughout a large area, you can buy cases that attach to the walls to prevent wires laying on the floor.
