Tips and Tricks for National Home Improvement Month

May is National Home Improvement Month! It’s the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and unleash your inner DIYer to work on some projects that will enhance your home. You don’t need to knock down walls to make an impact. Even the smallest efforts can make a big difference. Here are a few ideas and tips to get you started.


Project Idea: Paint your front door

Here’s a task that’s easy to do but can significantly upgrade your curb appeal. Paint your front door a vibrant color, such as a rich red, for a more welcoming entrance. Clark+Kensington paints offer superior coverage, and does a great job standing up to nature’s elements, resisting cracking and peeling.

Smart Ace Tip: Use a rubber band to wipe off excess paint from your brush or roller. Stretch the rubber band around the paint can opening, leaving a portion of it exposed. As you dip your brush or roller into the paint, wipe off the excess by running it along the rubber band. 



Project Idea: Turn a Large Closet into Office Space

With more and more people working from home, it’s important to find quiet spaces to work productively. The Milwaukee 18V Cordless Jig Saw combines blade speed and precision to give you perfect cuts on a wide variety of materials. Use it to build a custom desk and shelves for your new office space. 

Smart Ace Tip: Build the desk to conceal all the wires you will inevitably have from your computer, printer, lamp, etc! Design a backing for your desk equipped with holes to run the wires through.

Project idea: Refresh Fixtures

You can immediately refresh old fixtures, like faucets and doorknobs, with some spray paint. It’s easy and will save you money from having to buy new hardware or hiring a plumber. The Ace Premium Spray Paint offers a variety of colors, delivering a durable smooth finish with a fast dry time.

Smart Ace Tip: Once you’re done, turn the can upside down and press the handle until the paint stops coming out. This will prevent the nozzle from clogging.
