After four months of wind, snow, and rain, your home could probably use a good touch-up or two. Increasing your home’s curb appeal doesn’t mean you have to break the bank, or spend weeks remodeling. With just a bit of paint and some elbow grease, your home can be spring ready in one weekend. These are the first few projects you should tackle. 

Action Glass - Easy Projects for the Weekend DIYer

Plant flowers

Has the warm spring air inspired you to add some life to your property? Flowers, trees, and shrubs are a great way to add some color and excitement to your house. You can even plant trees strategically to give you more privacy or cover any windows that are directly facing the sun.

Install lighting

There’s no point in making all of these beautiful upgrades if no one can see them! Proper lighting doesn’t only highlight the best aspects of your house, it also makes your driveway and path safer.

Update your fence

If months of snow, ice, and wind has left your wooden fence damaged or chipped, take some time this weekend to spruce it up. A quick coat of paint is an inexpensive and easy way to take your fence from drab to fab.

Create a window box

If you have a green thumb, but not much yard space for a garden, window boxes are a great way to add charm to your house. Whether you decide to break out the toolbox and actually design your own window box, or just pick one up from the local department store, hanging plants add beauty to any home.

Paint your shutters

Don’t cover-up beautiful widows with dirty shutters. Some warm water and a splash of detergent will get rid of any dirt and dust that has caked onto your shutters.
