Curb appeal makes a home more beautiful, enjoyable and, if you’re looking to sell, valuable.
You don’t have to spend a bundle to elevate your home’s appearance — if you want to tackle a quick and inexpensive project, start with some concrete planters.
It’s the perfect little project to spruce up your front porch — and I’m serious when I say you can do it yourself!

- Masonry Paint (Optional)

You’ll also need to wear gloves to prevent skin irritation.
