1. House Hack #1: Replace old cabinet hardware and knobs
Changing out your old, outdated cabinet hardware and knobs can make a huge difference. You can give your room a more modern feel for only a dollar or two a knob! Some places can be more pricey. I found that the best deal is when you buy them in packs!
2. House Hack #2: Repaint Furniture
Old, paint chipped furniture can really stand out. An easy fix, that also works well with outdoor furniture, is to simply repaint it. I would first give the furniture a light sand to make sure you get all the chipping paint off first! I chose spray paint, because it was easy to use, cheap and fast!
3. House Hack #3: Power wash Your Sidewalks and Concrete
This is an easy AND fun house hack. Power wash your sidewalks and concrete. If you do not own a power washer. You can rent one, or you can see if your neighbor has one you can borrow!
4. House Hack #4: Replacing old Switch Plates and Outlet Covers
Outlet covers are fairly cheap, but also very easy to replace! I have seen them for less than a dollar each.
5. House Hack #5: Fresh Coat of Paint
Colors became outdated and walls get marks and scuffs on them. An easy fix for this is to give your room a fresh coat of paint. You could even do an accent wall and paint one wall different!
As you'll see in the YouTube video, all of these house hacks really made a difference!
