Not every home makeover has to be a major project that lasts days, weeks, or even months. There are a ton of quick touch-ups and fixes that can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your home, even though you can finish the project in less than an hour.

Check out these low-cost home makeover ideas that can really lift the spirits of a tired home:

A new mailbox: Chances are you’re still using the same mailbox that came with your home. But giving your mailbox a fresh coat of paint—or even replacing it entirely—is pretty painless, and it instantly upgrades your home’s curb appeal.

Declutter: Less is usually more. Go through your home and consider all the stuff that you haven’t used in years. If it’s no longer serving a purpose, sell it, donate it, or throw it away. Need more support in this area? Have a look at Marie Kondo’s book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up.

New hardware for your drawers: Painting kitchen and bathroom cabinets can be a big undertaking—drop cloths, tape, washing brushes and rollers, etc. But you can change out your drawer hardware in just a few minutes—all you have to do is pick out the new fixtures.

Repaint a drab room: You do not need to be Van Gogh or Picasso in order to repaint a room. For under $30, you can buy a gallon of paint and refresh or completely change the look of one of your rooms.
