Everyone knows that there are fewer distractions in the winter, so they take all the items of their DIY project to-do list and get them done during the colder months. Such projects could include a new bench or coffee table.

Bonus! Indoor Garden or Herb Garden,
This one may just be for fun, it doesn’t really better your home. Although, it is said that having healthy plants in your home makes it more appealing to home buyers.
