No excuses – it’s time to tackle those long-overdue outdoor painting projects!
Thankfully, sprucing up your home’s exterior doesn’t have to mean painting your property in its entirety. There are so many small but significant tweaks you can make in just a few hours – certainly no more than a free weekend.
If looking to show your home a little TLC this summer and still enjoy an easy ride in the process, here are six of the quickest and easiest weekend paint jobs to try your hand at right now:
- Give Your Entryway a Makeover
A simple and affordable project that can nonetheless transform the entire aesthetic of your property, why not treat your front door to a new coat of paint? The same also applies to its surroundings – the doorframe, the decorative details either side of it and so on.
Go for something subtle that blends in with the rest of your home, or pep things up with something more eye-catching. Armed with the paint, some primer and a supply of sandpaper, you’ve more or less everything you need to boost your home’s curb appeal.
- Paint Your Garage Door
This can be just as impactful as painting your front door, if not more so. Depending on how prominent your garage door is (i.e. how easily it can be seen), treating it to a fresh coat of paint can make a massive difference to the way your home looks as a whole.
Again, it’s entirely up to you whether you go for something bright and bold or elegant and understated. It depends entirely on the look you’re going for, along with whether your garage is attached to your home or a separate standalone unit.
- Fences, Posts and Planters
Take a walk around your garden and make a mental note of anything that would technically be compatible with a coat of paint. Next, visualize how they could make a huge difference to your home’s appearance if they were painted a different color.
From pots to planters to sheds to fence panels and more, there’s probably a ton of potential hidden all around you. Plus, it’s worth bearing in mind that if you aren’t completely happy with the result, it takes no time at all to repaint them their original color.
- Brighten Up Your Decking
Alternatively, why not grab yourself a can of quality stain and bring your decking to life in a new shade? Again, the only thing’ you’ll need to bring your decking back to life are some sandpaper, some stain and some decent brushes.
For an even more drastic makeover, you could also consider painting your decking an entirely different color from top to bottom. There’s no shortage of options to choose from, just as long as you choose an appropriate type of paint that’s designed for high-traffic areas and can withstand even the harshest weather conditions.
- Window Frames and Shutters
Another quick and easy job that can still make a big difference is brightening up your window frames, along with any exterior shutters fitted to your home. This can be particularly effective if you go for a color that contrasts sharply yet beautifully with the rest of your home’s color scheme.
That said, simply opting for a pristine white in a glossy finish can create a gorgeous overall effect. A quick, easy and affordable way to give your exteriors a makeover – without confusing yourself with color choice!
- Wooden Garden Furniture
Last up, painting wooden garden furniture a new color is one of the simplest and most satisfying weekend projects of all. It’s also the kind of thing you can get the kids involved with, lightening the workload for you and giving them something practical to do with their time off school.
Sand the surface and prime well, before bringing your furniture back to life with a fresh coat of paint in any color that takes your fancy. Though again, ensure it is durable enough to go the distance and withstand whatever the weather throws its way.
