How holiday ready is your home? With only a couple of weekends until Thanksgiving (and plenty of other holidays on their way after that), you could get a leg up on all the holiday work by preparing your home for this today.

This Weekend’s Assignment:

Get your home prepped for holiday guests

If you’re entertaining this holiday season, there are two main areas of your home you could spend some weekend time working on. If you’ll be entertaining dinner guests for Thanksgiving, why not consider giving your dining room a nice deep clean? You could also take a look at your dining room furniture — table and chairs or bench — and see if anything needs tightening or repairing.

If you will have overnight guests, you might take a look at your guest room to clean it, see if you need new sheets or consider adding some design details to make it even more homey.

Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do! And a quick note to our loyal Weekend Project readers: We will be closing down the Weekend Project assignments this year before Thanksgiving.

This is a time of the year where many people are busy making preparations for the holidays and often have their own long lists of weekend projects to tackle. You’ll always be able to find all of our past assignments here. And stay tuned next year when Weekend Projects starts back up again in 2016!
