6 Remodeling Projects You Can Finish Before Christmas (If You Start Now)

Trying to fit in an entire kitchen remodel before the holidays would be incredibly stressful, but tackling a smaller project is still very doable and, depending on what you’re looking to do, could be done in time for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Here are a couple of ideas for what remodeling projects could be reasonably done before the holidays without too much stress.
