As the nice weather has you outside enjoying your porch or deck, you may be looking at some weathered wood or shabby elements around your yard. Thankfully, a fresh coat of paint could remedy that tired look.
The nice thing about exterior projects are that you don’t have to do everything at once. There are many small and manageable jobs that can take only a few days to complete.
Garage- A weathered looking structure can make your curb appeal look neglected and unkempt. This will cost less than painting your entire home, so it’s a budget-friendly way to make a major change in the look of your home.
Shed-. Like your garage, a tired shed will stick out in your yard and decrease curb appeal. For a cohesive look, you could mimic the paint color you have on your garage, or go for something a little more unique to add some whimsy. Some window boxes with bright flowers would be the icing on the cake.
Deck- Since a deck increases your home’s livable space, this should not be overlooked in keeping it looking maintained and appealing. There are many great exterior paints available at Page Hardware that are perfect for this kind of project. Another option is staining to keep the warmth of wood.
Window Trim and Porch Trim- Often over looked or not thought of as a project in and of itself, simply painting the trim can make these architectural elements pop and liven up the exterior.
Mailbox- Don’t have a lot of time? Paint your mailbox for a fresh and super easy spruce up. Find a fun hue that you love, and go for it.
There isn’t much that a paint brush can’t fix. Even a small project will add to your curb appeal and will help you gain confidence to tackle bigger projects yourself around the home. Practice makes progress.
