14. Solar Spotlights
If you have a lot of trees and shrubs, this is the easiest thing you can do to make your home look fabulous at night! I stumbled across these at Home Depot, and ended up buying 4 of them. I have 2 of them shining on trees, and the others shining on these huge boulders we have in the front yard. They make the yard look amazing at night, and because they are solar powered, there’s no added expense to your electric bill. They also have them available with the solar panel attached with a long wire so you can place it quite a distance away from the spot light where it might get more sun during the day.
15. Hide Your Hose
They actually make a pot for this! I suppose the only difference is there’s a small hole for the hose in the back so it can be connected to the water faucet. What a fantastic way to keep it out of sight yet easy to access and use. I’m also really digging the idea of keeping one hidden in a storage bench — build one or just drill a hole large enough to fit your hose in the back of an already existing one.
16. Faux Garage Windows
I can imagine the hardest part of this project is getting the tape level and straight, but aside from that, it is certainly easier than replacing it! It looks particularly good on this garage door because it sits far back from the road under a lot of shade trees. You would never guess these windows were painted from the street! You can find instructions for this project here. You can also buy faux window stickers for this! That sounds even easier.
