For quick and affordable DIY projects, nothing goes farther than a new coat of paint.
Start outside by taking an inventory of your siding and trim. If your paint is fading or peeling off your siding, start the prep work by repairing the siding and trim with some waterproof patching compound. Once dry, sand and apply primer. Then, repaint those areas until your exterior looks fresh and clean.
Once inside, look in each room and think of the last time the walls were painted. If several years have passed, consider giving those rooms a fresh coat, or change the look of the room completely with a new color. To get started, click here.
