Weekend Project: Replace Exterior Hardware


With spring just around the corner, it’s a great time to work on creating some new exterior appeal to your home. A quick and easy way to make a big difference on the look of your exterior is to replace exterior hardware. This means installing things like a new door handle, bolt lock, mailbox, or outdoor lighting. Each of these are simple projects that any homeowner can tackle.

Here are the sites we recommend for tutorials for each of these projects:

Replacing door handle & lock (DIY Divas–includes lots of helpful pictures)

Install a new mailbox (Lowes)

Replacing outdoor light fixtures (Make it and Love it blog)

As you purchase and install these items, make sure you select ones that will match both each other and the overall look of your home. By making these minor changes, you’ll give your home a face lift just in time for spring!
