Did you ever think winter would let us out of her grips? Yep, we didn’t either. The long torturous cold is finally giving way to beautiful weather here in North Carolina. Spring time just gets us in the mood for pretty bulbs, long walks after dinner, and the occasional spritzer on the patio. It got us thinking about a long list of to-do’s to make the curb appeal of our home really stand out.
And the list got long…
And it got longer…
And finally we realized that budget, time, and priorities would have to be taken into account before we could complete the Martha Stewart Spring extravaganza curb appeal we had in our minds. You know exactly what we’re talking about…step away from Pinterest before your honey-do list starts driving both you and your partner crazy.
We got to thinking that with a fleeting amount of time to spend on sprucing up our home for Spring we needed to get a lot of wow factor with little invested. Here is our suggested list for your top three:
It may seem like the typical Spring curb appeal, but notice how custom this mix of hydrangeas and ferns look in these pots? By just taking a few extra minutes at Lowes, you can easily blend a beautiful arrangement together that spruces up your front door. Another overlooked quick fix? Take a look at your door mat. Chances are you probably need a new one. Winter can be rough on door mats and so take the time to update yours.
You see it every time you pull in your driveway. It’s the mailbox. The one item of your outside home decor that is often overlooked. It’s like the plain jane step sister that no one notices. Unless, of course you happen to have the neighborhood kid back into it- again. A little bit of spray paint, some fresh flowers, and house numbers can easily make going to get the mail a bit more enjoyable.
