If you’re looking to sell your home, or just looking for little ways to improve the interior or exterior of your home, we’ve got just the list for you! Each one of these makes for a great weekend project. The best part is, you don’t have to have any sort of special skills or knowledge to complete these home improvements. The majority of these projects involve simply putting a coat of paint in strategic places, so if you can paint, you’re good to go!

Add Decorative Trim To Doors

This is such a great way to give a room a whole new look! Most homes come with those plain slab wood doors. An easy way to upgrade is to grab some trim and get creative with adding some texture to the wood. You can mark off and place squares, or go for a fun barn door look by making an X over the door. Then, paint the whole thing. White is always a safe color, but you decide what goes best with your room and decor.

Paint The Front Door

Isn’t it amazing what a huge difference this makes? With just a fresh coat of paint and a few brass hardware pieces, you can totally transform the look of your front door. I don’t think we need to tell you the importance of the front door when it comes to making a good first impression.

Painting Rusted Fences

If you’ve got a rusted out metal fence, you might be tempted to take it all down and start from scratch. But wait! Before spending all of that money, see if you can salvage it by spray painting the fence with rustolium. A nice black coat of paint will do a wold of good. You’ll be completely surprised to see what a difference this makes.

Paint Kitchen Cabinets

Ok, so this one might be a little more than a “weekend project,” but we think you’ll agree the results are totally worth the extra time and effort! Just look at the difference a coat of white paint did for this kitchen. It went from a 90s vibe to a modern day chic look with just a coat of paint!

Paint Air Conditioning Vents

This may seem like a small, inconsequential thing, but you’ll notice the difference right away. Simply take down all the vents, dust them off, and spray paint the same color as your ceiling. It gives everything a nice clean look without having to replace the vents!
