Lawn: Mow the grass, weed whack the edges, trim flowers, put down new mulch.
Accent Colors: If possible, paint the front door a bright color. Change the door hardware and install a heavy brass knocker. All this can make an old door look brand new.
New Mailbox: A new mailbox can add additional curb appeal. Whether it is brand new or painted with new numbers.
Make your house numbers stand out. Use new numbers from Hobby Lobby or any hardware store to give them a new look.
