If there’s something this Wisconsin girl knows, it’s winters. I’m in the rare camp of people who love winter, although even I am ready for some spring weather at this point! Up here it’s not uncommon for things to shut down due to severe winter weather – stores, schools, vehicles, etc. – but something else that often comes to a screeching halt once winter hits is home improvement projects. More than two-thirds of adults find projects throughout the winter that they need to complete in their homes. Are you one of the many people who say there are things about your home that bother you every time you look at them?
If so, I’ve got great news – the snow is melting, spring has arrived, and Lowe’s is here to help!
Lowe’s is partnering up with 10 bloggers – including yours truly! – to help our readers in the “10 Bleakest Cities of 2015” complete home makeover projects that have been neglected or delayed due to extreme winter conditions. According to the Accumulated Winter Season Severity Index (AWSSI) the following U.S. cities were the the harshest hit this past winter:
- Boston, Massachusetts
- Buffalo, New York
- Detroit, Michigan
- Hartford, Connecticut
- Louisville, Kentucky
- Nashville, Tennessee
- Newark, New Jersey
- New York, New York
- Portland, Maine
- Providence, Rhode Island
Do you live in one of these cities? If so, tell us how you’d like to transform your home for spring! We’ll check out your project ideas, and me – or one of my DIY blogging friends below – just might show up at your door to make it happen!
Each of us bloggers will be assigned to one of the 10 cities above, along with a team of Lowe’s volunteers, to design and complete spring sprucing up projects for the home such as painting, landscaping, creating outdoor rooms and adding curb appeal. The projects that get selected will be easy refresh projects that can be completed in one day. Need some spring inspiration? Check out the Lowe’s DIY and home improvement gallery to see these project ideas and more!
