Curb Appeal for Less

In the June 2014 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, there’s an article featuring tips on how to do a quick curb appeal makeover. I love all the tips, but I’m wondering if this look can be achieved for less than the items they’re suggesting.


You can take the curb appeal quiz here.

  • Sherwin Williams does offer great paint choices, but instead of paying full price, you can use a coupon like this one found here.
  • Always check the clearance plant section at Lowe’s and Home Depot before paying full price on plants.
  • Garden Ridge and Big Lots are good sources for inexpensive plant pots


This light from Lowe’s  for $97.90 is a decent knock-off for the one from Shades of Light.

Kohl’s sells this trellis coir doormat on sale for $19.79, which saves almost $10 compared to the Kendra Trellis Doormat by Pottery Barn.

Kohl’s also sells this chevron one that costs $19.79.
