Alright, lets talk about curb appeal. I have not done a ton of things with the front of my house other than plant flowers and the basics because my house is already so charming on its own and I never have a ton in the budget for it. Last year before my Better Homes and Gardens photo shoot I painted the steps and walkway. The walkway was tinted concrete that was hot pink. I kid you not. It has held up really well.
Last year I also got a new mail box, spray painted the base, and added out last name to it in vinyl. That has also held up really well.
I am going to be slowly doing a little project here and there to spruce up the ‘ole front porch this spring. Yesterday my 5 year old and I planted a few flowers next to the walkway. They don’t look like much now. It doesn’t help that my two year old ripped them out about a half an hour after we planted them. *sigh* But they will be wonderful when they fill out :)
Next on the list are new house numbers, potted plants, new porch light, and a little somethin’ somethin’ I am not sharing yet. I have never shown the whole exterior of our house. But when I get it all done I will.
Have a fabulous Memorial weekend!!!
