One thing we can do during the winters if the weather is not too inclement, is think about the curb appeal of our homes. Oh sure, we can't get outside and plant new shrubberies or embark upon huge projects, but there are several projects that can be completed in a day of sunny weather with just a little foresight.
It is amazing what a little color can do to a front door! Consider painting your door a vibrant blue or red like the one below.
This family didn't do much-only replace their door and hang some new lights. A few potted evergreens on the porch make such a difference!
One of the easiest things we can do for our entry way is decorative lighting!
No one wants to walk up on an un-lit porch to visit a home. Consider shopping the sale aisle at your local home improvement warehouse for new front porch lighting! An easy fixer-upper!
I love shutters! They add another dimension of color and style to your home. They can be operative or not and often are quite inexpensive and easy to hang.
Window boxes provide yet another simple way to improve your home's curb appeal! The exterior of a home is complemented all season with fresh flowers or evergreens.
Fresh paint and new porch railings make an inviting walkway in this front porch re-do.
Your entry sets the tone for the rest of your home so we want our porches and walk-ways to be the first Welcome our guests see!
Although it is not seasonally appropriate to think about greenery in my neck of the woods, a girl can dream! In my head and in my Home Journal I am sketching simple arches with roses and pots of beautiful plants! Well-tended greenery is such an inviting sight.
Adding a fence can transform your home's curb appeal while providing safety and privacy!
I long for days in the sun gardening and working outside. But for now I will take some stolen time with a quick DIY project and consider that giving my home a Hug from the outside!
