Zero Dollar Redo – Painted Window Boxes

Zero Dollar Redo – Painted Window Box with Impatiens

There’s no denying that the internet is full of amazing ideas to make our home look fabulous. If time and money weren’t a factor, I’m sure more of us would jump on the renovation train. But updates to our home don’t have to be expensive or time consuming. For example, I took some primer that I had on hand and a pot of test paint that I got for free, (Valspar offers coupons for free samples in several magazines) and took my window boxes from dreary and depressing to bright and cheerful!

The only materials needed

See for yourself:

Doesn’t that make a difference? And they look even better with flowers planted in them:

Now, if it were up to me, I’d paint the entire house. But being that I rent, this was within the realms of what I knew my landlord would be okay with.

And for all of you renters out there, I know it can be frustrating to read blog after blog showing home renovators turning fixer uppers into their dream homes. I feel your pain because I experience it myself! But since owning a home is not practical for us right now, I look for ways to make my rental a little more “me.” And these window boxes do just that! I hope this post inspires you to do the same, whether you own your home or not.
