When your home feels lackluster, it can be hard to know where to start or when to stop. We love using the weekends to get our home in shape, but we usually bite off more than we can chew. Below, we've listed 7 cheap and simple pick-me-ups that can be completed in an afternoon. Pick just one, get it done, and feel a sense of accomplishment knowing that you've done something good for your home...

Declutter. Start by getting rid of one or two things and move forward from there.
Rearrange your furniture for a dramatic makeover that costs nothing.
Use the weekend to organize something, whether it's a big closet or a small junk drawer.
Tablescape. Arranging the things you love adds a final layer of detail to your home.
Bring new life into your home by buying a new plant or a bouquet of flowers.
Paint. Start small by tackling an accent wall or small area.
