DIY: easy curb appeal in a weekend

What’s black and white and the perfect shade of blue?

This adorable and freshly painted home! It’s located in quaint St. Nicholas in Jacksonville, Florida. Only a mile from San Marco’s restaurants and shopping, and a six-minute drive to downtown Jacksonville. Built in 1938, this house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, indoor laundry, original hardwood floors, and brand new stainless steel appliances.

A minor make-over

An example of a few easy updates that add to a home’s curb appeal: New shutters; updated color on the front door; and of course, shiny new house numbers.

Front door color from Home Depot: “Big Surf”, M-460-3U, Card CB-4

How can you go wrong when nature is your inspiration?

BEFORE: House was plain with no shutters, a tired red door, and worn gold house numbers.

AFTER: Black shutters, super fresh coastal-blue front door, and brushed nickel house numbers.
