If you say that a house needs 'a lick of paint' it means that it would benefit from being painted. The implication is that even just a quick paint job would improve the appearance of the house. The image/idiom is one of the paintbrush briefly 'licking' the house, like the tongue of a dog licking something.

It is an expression which means just a quick touch up to make something look better.
