[House Favorite]: Two.

There is something just so iconic about a cherry-red front door.
[Here's mine]

This little project took no more than 1 hour and cost less than $10 for a small can of paint.
Maybe red's not your thing; navy blue, limey green, and butter yellow are other great options. A bold front door adds just a little bit of oomph and polish to your curbside appeal, and since it's so super-easy to do yourself, I can't recommend it enough.


Shutter headboard.

One day, I meandered around in the New London Antique Center, where all of the wood-chipped, falling apart items seem to catch my eye. At the time, with no purpose in mind, I bought these three shutters [navy blue at the time]. I knew I'd find something to do with them. 

And now, who would have thought: I'd have a [guest-proclaimed] boutique hotel suite as my second bedroom. I feel so cool! It was very simple, actually. I sanded them down, spray painted them [and half my driveway - but who sees it anyways?], and drilled a few holes. And VOILA!
