As this point of the quarantine, you’ve probably binge watched three Netflix shows, baked banana bread twice, and attempted to make whipped coffee. If you’re anything like us, you’re running out of things to do. So we’ve compiled a list of 10 easy home projects to keep yourself busy!

1. Start a Garden

Order some seeds online or pick up herbs from your favorite local grocery store. This is a great way to get outside and get some vitamin D, and there is something truly special about eating fruits or vegetables that you grew yourself.

2. Go Through + Donate Old Clothes

Personally, I have been saying I was going to do this for years now as my closet is overflowing. With all this free time, I can make some space and get rid of the stuff I haven't touched since I was in high school. 

3. Organize Junk Drawers/Cabinets

You will feel so much better when you actually do this!

4. Style Your Shelves

Give your shelves a good dusting and switch around your decorations. And then snap a shot and post a #shelfie on your 'gram. 📷 

5. Paint an Accent Wall

This is a super easy and cheap way to give any room a facelift! Experiment with a dark green or a black wall for a chic look, or opt for painting your own abstract print!

6. Organize + Paint Your Pantry Shelves

Maybe even consider ordering acrylic organization containers to achieve an aesthetically pleasing setup!

7. Create a Reading Nook

We all probably have at least one book—or maybe even a stack—that we've been saying we're going to read for ages. Create a cozy little corner by setting up a comfy chair and ottoman. Add a lamp and a throw blanket and you're good to go!

8. Try a New Recipe

If having 200+ untried recipe pins on Pinterest were a crime, then I'm pleading guilty. And I'm sure I'm not the only one in this boat. Take a stab at one of those recipes. You may just find a new favorite!

9. Make Some Art for a Frame You Already Have

Let some of your creativity flow by filling an old frame with some of your own art, pages from a scrapbook, or even try pressing some flowers in there for a cool botanical look.

10. Create + Style a WFH Space

Working from home is not exactly an easy task with hoards of distractions everywhere you turn. Create a dedicated space for yourself!
