Make Your Home Stand Out with These Ideas from ‘Saturday Morning Projects’

Updated: Mar. 06, 2023

With guests coming to visit, there's no better time to improve the curb appeal of your home. Here are some ideas inspired by the show Saturday Morning Projects now streaming on At Home with Family Handyman.

In the second episode of At Home with Family Handyman’s show Saturday Morning Projects, the team takes a look at a handful of quick and easy curb appeal projects capable of adding a little pizazz before a visit from the in-laws.

As you might have guessed, we’re big fans of DIY projects to upgrade your home that can be done before lunch on a weekend day. Whether you’re improving the landscaping around your front step or adding a coat of a paint to the front door, these projects are the true spirit of DIY. Best of all, they’re things even a novice can tackle.

Surprise guests are a mixed bag at best. It’s nice to have company, but if only there was a little more time to ready your space for visitors. If you do find yourself in this situation, take some inspiration from the folks at Saturday Morning Builds, who recommend a few easy DIY projects that are sure to impress your guests — even the in-laws!

Here are some more easy, practical things you can do to give your house a little pop before company arrives.

One of the easiest, most cost-effective improvements you can make is giving your front door a new coat of paint. Done correctly, it adds real pop to the front of your home. There’s no way your incoming guests will miss your house. A fresh coat of paint on the front door also boosts the curb appeal if you’re looking to sell your home.

Painting a front door is an easy weekend project, and you’ll be finished before lunch. You can even paint it without removing it from the hinges, saving even more time.

These solar-powered house numbers are another cool idea that can really set your home apart from everyone else on the block. It’s another way to help guests to find your house more easily, and it’s an easy Saturday morning project, too.
