In the winter, your home’s windows work hard. Hopefully you’ve prepped them for the cold (and if not, weatherize first)! Because windows let in precious light and help you connect to the outside world during dark, bleak months. Make them more valuable by washing the glass, swapping out your old curtains for some new ones, cleaning the ones you have, or adding a refreshing little detail. Daylight hours are dwindling and all this helps really make the most of what you’ve got.

This Weekend’s Assignment: Make your windows the very best they can be.

Come Clean: Before you do anything else, wipe or squeegee away all the dirt and grime that summer left behind.

Frame Things Nicely: Add window coverings for a window you’ve been meaning to get to but haven’t yet. Or add a unique and small detail to existing window treatments.

Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do. And hey, if you don’t feel like picking up some Windex, choose one of our other weekend projects to get done.
