7. Mailbox Makeover
The mailbox is literally the first impression of your home, and because it is so small, it could be as simple as an afternoon project to get it looking like it came straight out of a luxury home catalog. This one is actually a cast stone post surround that can be placed over a 4×4 wooden post, so it’s much easier than it looks!
8. Create A Walkway
Even something as simple as placing a few pieces of slate down to create a pathway can make your home seem so much more inviting. My husband and I did this from the front circle drive to a side area in our yard (so we could stop walking through the grass), and it really made a noticeable difference in the overall look of our home.
9. Add Shutters
Small windows got you down? Add shutters to make them look twice their size! This also breaks up a large and boring exterior wall — giving your home lots of visual interest. Choosing a color that is the complete opposite of the color of your home will make them pop even more. For instance, I love the way black shutters look on a white or soft beige colored home.
