Easy Sweat Equity Projects You Can Do In A Weekend
Sweat equity projects are affordable home improvement projects that can be done at a low cost with a little bit of elbow grease. Here are a few ideas that can be done in a weekend.

The cabinet bases can be painted in place. (White cabinets never go out of style if you're looking for the best resale value.) Consider changing out hardware for a kitchen that will look brand new!
Replace or install tile. Laying tile is so labor intensive that you can save a lot of money by installing it yourself. The work requires very few tools and there are many online tutorials to help you get started.
Install and finish trim or crown molding. This project is quick and can add a beautiful finishing touch that buyers will appreciate whenever you choose to sell your home in the future.
Nothing feels better than not only saving money on a home project by doing it yourself, but feeling that sense of pride knowing you were the one that built that coffee table, installed those new blinds, repainted the guest room, or added a fruit tree in the backyard.
