TOM: Already getting the winter blues? Brighten up your living spaces and your attitude with a few affordable home improvements. Hi. I’m Tom Kraeutler.
LESLIE: And I’m Leslie Segrete with today’s Money Pit Home Improvement Minute.
TOM: After holiday decorations are packed away, lift your spirits once again with a few shoulder season updates. Start at the front door by polishing hardware, rolling out a new doormat, and making sure porch lights are in working order and equipped with bright bulbs.
LESLIE: You want to plant pops of winter color in porch containers in strategic spots throughout your landscaping. And start spring early indoors with planters of forced bulbs or a mini herb garden in a sunny window.
TOM: And nothing beats winter blues like bright lightening. So, make additions and adjustments for warm, welcoming comfort throughout your family’s waking hours.
LESLIE: You can also warm up living areas with colorful throws and comfortable pillows, adding spring tones and texture as the next season draws near. I’m Leslie Segrete.
