When we think of Valentine’s Day we traditionally think of flowers, candy, jewelry, and other tangible expressions of love. And while we don’t have anything against tradition, we do think that there are occasionally other things that—while they may not be quite as romantic—demonstrate love and appreciation on a more practical level.
You probably have some nagging projects around the house that you’ve been meaning to get at for a long time—but they never get done.
Here are five projects that just might make your Valentine feel special and appreciated this year.
Fix that leaky faucet in the kitchen
The constant sound of dripping water isn’t exactly soothing. Plus, it’s a waste of water. Wouldn’t it be nice to walk into the kitchen and hear the sound of . . . silence?
Re-stain the deck
Having a romantic evening on the deck is a great idea. But if your deck is worn and weathered from the harsh Florida sun, it may not be all that enticing. Maybe it’s time to rediscover the pleasures of your deck.
Fix the pantry or closet door that never quite closes properly
Doors that squeak or scrape or simply don’t close are irritating. If you or your Valentine ever grumble about an ill-fitting door, now is a good time to remove that irritation.
Repair broken tile
Maybe you want to let your Valentine enjoy a soothing soak in the tub for Valentine’s Day. Nothing ruins the mood like chipped, cracked, or broken tile. And if water gets in through the break you could end up with big problems (and there’s nothing romantic about that).
Solve the storage problem
There you are, preparing a nice romantic meal, when you open the closet door to get some candles—and half the contents of the closet come pouring out (plus, you can’t find the candles). Installing some storage shelves in the closets of your Naples home could really make a big difference in keeping things organized.
