I recently visited a home from the 90s with all these updates throughout the home, it honestly felt like I was stepping into a home that was built 5 yrs ago! So I wanted to put the info here on my blog !

Molding, molding, trim, and then more molding… These inexpensive little pieces of wood can impact the look of your doors and windows so much ! No matter what style you want to go with, craftsmen, colonial or cambridge, this project is very affordable, it will give your house the homey and cozy look it deserves !

Another great way to improve the look of your windows, if you are already contemplating fixing the molding, upgrade your windows too if you can afford to do it. It will save you energy and improve the curb appeal as well


Fixtures, believe it or not, fixtures whether outside or inside, they can totally change the look and fell of a home completely. These are my favorite, specially because they are the least expensive to change/update. If you want to keep the same fixtures but just give them some new life there is that option too ! See the transformations below to believe it !

I hope these DIY ideas were helpful and get you going for some summer projects ! Have fun !

The referral of your friends and family
