However, when someone comes to visit what is the first thing they see?? The front of your house (let's hope). The front of our home was already appealing but I knew I could step it up a notch. We could spend forever landscaping (and we have) but there are some simple ways I knew I could update it for cheap.
Let me remind you...this is what it looked like to begin with:
First and foremost, I PAINTED THAT DOOR! Red is probably my least favorite color and we all know what my favorite color is. Yup, it's teal now!! YAYAY...(happy dance) I LOVE it! What a huge improvement.We also switched the kick-plate and door knocker to oil rubbed bronze! (and plan to do the keypad soon)
Gabby made me the welcome sign and it even had a teal ribbon on it so I decided to start there for inspiration. It has the rustic touch that complements my style but is still cheery and fresh!
(clearly we need to powerwash!)
And at some point I would love to switch out the porch light to one of these!!
Home Depot (save)
Shades of Light (splurge)
What do you think so far?? It definitely feels more like our home now!!
Also, we finally ordered the living room rug!!! That should arrive within a week and then all that's left are the chairs :)
