As summer draws to a close, home owners have home improvement on their mind. If you have been avoiding your do-it-yourself list for fear that home improvement projects will take up too much time, here is a list of projects that can be done in a single weekend.
Replace House Numbers…with oversize numbers in a style that compliments your home’s architecture.
Put Out a Welcome Mat….You can change it with the seasons or use it to show your individuality.
Clean Up The Landscaping…by seeding bare spots in the lawn and pruning overgrown foundation plantings.
Paint The Front Door…Consider a bold color such as high-gloss red, forest green, or black to call attention to the entry or compliment a color on the trim.
Hang a Door Knocker… You can choose from classic designs, bold rings or whimsical motifs.
Put Up Window Boxes… Wood boxes can be customized with paint or stain; synthetic boxes require no maintenance.
Add Some Potted Plants…near the door and along walkways.
Replace the Doorknob… If you stick to the same size as the existing handle, it’s an easy DIY job.
Upgrade the Lighting… A hanging or wall-mounted fixture near the door is like jewelry, and lighting in the yard adds interest as well as security.
Replace the Mailbox…or touch up the rust spots with paint.
