good winter projects?

well fall is here, colder months are ahead... while my galley refit is a major project, i was wondering if you guys had any good cabin improvement projects you have undertaken? As the wheather turns i will have lots of time below to fiddle around, and now that she is pretty well buttoned up i just wondered if anyone had creative things they've done to improve comfort/function/livability?
