Are you living in an ugly house? (The house above is not an example of this.)

Never fear if you have one of the less than attractive ones–your house just needs make-up.

5 Ways to Add Curb Appeal…Or How to Camouflage An Ugly House.

1.Vines. If your house isn’t wood—use cover up.

I can almost hear the home inspectors screaming. Do your research. Some will tear off your gutters, some look bad in the winter, and some are prone to being a highway for insects. But some can WOW. (Southern Living Do’s and Don’ts)

I know none of these examples were ugly houses to start with–but this is meant to inspire:)

2.Paint your front door. Let’s face it–we all look better with a little¬†color.

3.Flowering anything. Bushes, trees, flowers.

4.Spruce up your grass. (It’s the hair cut of the bunch.)

5.Flare. Big colorful pots flanking the front door, porch lights, door knocker, front door mat, wreath, and/or dare I say a lawn ornament or two?
