1. Paint the front door
Painting your whole house? That’s an expensive project that takes time. On the other hand, painting the front door gives the front of your house a fresh, new look in an afternoon.
It can also increase your home value, as we explain in “Painting With This Color Can Boost Your Home’s Sale Price by $6,000.” Be sure to use an exterior paint that’s right for this job.
In total, the materials — including painter’s tape, paintbrushes, primer and paint — should run well under $100.
