It seems like 2018 just started, but we’re officially in the middle of autumn, and the holidays are practically upon us. Whether the thought of shopping, feasting, and house guests fills you with glee or not, odds are that it does fill your mind with to-do lists. It probably includes home projects you would like to get done before the tree is trimmed and the Thanksgiving guests descend upon your San Antonio home.

The holidays are a natural time to turn one’s mind toward home decorating and we want to help you get a jump on things. Here are four easy, satisfying projects you can complete before Thanksgiving that will beautify your home for the holidays and beyond.

  1. Paint your front door (inside and out!)- The internet is awash with great paint colors that you can use on your front door. Perhaps you have been dying to give one a try but have not had the nerve. Use the holidays as an excuse to tackle this simple paint job and think of how amazing your evergreen wreath will look on your freshly painted door. (Be sure to do this project in weather that is conducive with the temperature guidelines of your paint.)
  2. Add an accent wall- If you want to add a little wall paint color to your living or dining room but find yourself short on time, try painting an accent wall. This is an easy project you can knock out in a day that will make a dramatic impact on your home. It will also allow you to try out a new wall paint color without a major commitment.
  3. Paint your fireplace or mantle- When you think of cozying up in front of your fireplace this winter, do you cringe at the thought of ugly brick? If so, the time has come to give your fireplace a makeover. This relatively simple weekend project can dramatically transform your living space and make your holiday mantle decor stand out against a new paint color.
  4. Furniture- Perhaps a new side table or buffet is just the thing you need to make your holiday hosting a little easier this year. Consider thrifting a great piece of furniture and repainting it to add style and function to your home for years to come. You can use it to showcase your favorite holiday home decor, serve appetizers, or provide your guests with a place to set their drinks while you swap stories.
