Going on week three of being stuck in your homes during the COVID-19 pandemic can cause anyone to go a little stir crazy or at least be feeling a little bored.

How about working on some projects that will add value to your home? Here are some great ideas! Don't forget, if you need any items for these projects to be sure to not overcrowd the stores.
