Give your house a little fall cleanup.

Updated: Dec 19, 2020

With the cold (& 𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐠) New England winter fast approaching, now is the perfect time to tackle some of those home improvement projects! Creating a fresh and modern look to your home can be done both inexpensively and in just one weekend!

Here are my top 4 picks of easy 𝐃𝐨 𝐢𝐭 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐟 weekend (or two) projects!

1. 𝐏𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐭 𝐝𝐨𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝/𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐩𝐨𝐫𝐜𝐡!

You will be amazed at how far a color change can go! ((Be sure to use floor paint for your porch!)) If you really want to get creative, use painters tape to create a simple pattern.

𝐓𝐈𝐏: if you are thinking about painting for resale, black and charcoal grey are said to increase a homes value.

2. 𝐔𝐩𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐧𝐮𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫 𝐚𝐧𝐝/𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐛𝐨𝐱!

A new house number in a different font size can add a lot of uniqueness and charm to your home.

𝐓𝐈𝐏: if you are replacing your mailbox or mailbox post, consider adding a few extra landscaping details for some major curb appeal!

3. 𝐔𝐩𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐫𝐚𝐬𝐬 𝐝𝐨𝐨𝐫 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐛𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐬𝐩𝐫𝐚𝐲 𝐩𝐚𝐢𝐧𝐭!

I. Need. To. Do. This.

Replacing all the interior door knobs in your home can be expensive! For about $6 you can spray paint them for an instant refresh!

𝐓𝐈𝐏: use a high grit sandpaper followed by a liquid de-glosser for a smooth finish.

4. 𝐀𝐝𝐝 𝐩𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐬 𝐭𝐨 𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐚𝐧 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐮𝐩𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐞!

Outside. Inside. It does not matter! A beautifully potted plant can add character and charm to any room or space.

𝐓𝐈𝐏: spend a little time picking out ceramic pots, a few extra dollars can go a long way.
