It’s here! The curb appeal improvement challenge is coming to an end officially. It’s been a fun 5 weeks sharing little bits and pieces but today there are 11 reveals.
Our yard started off bland, brick and uninviting. I felt so behind the curve after seeing where these other lovely ladies were starting off. I had lots of ideas and dreams for the space, ones that will take much longer than 5 weeks. But I used this time to address 2 main problems.
1. The doorway was dirty, dim and just hadn’t been cared for.
2. There’s no front porch area for sitting and greeting friends.
And here’s the progress I’ve made:
Unfortunately I didn’t get the whole front yard looking spiffier but it’s a great start and I’m anxious to get going on this other side:
I also have plans to paint the awnings. So make sure you’re keeping up with me via your favorite blog reading methods and we’ll get to this side next.
But let’s look at the prettier side, because that’s why we’re here today
The metal side table, citronella candle, welcome mat and rug are from AtHome. The chairs and wicker set are Craigslist finds. The “table cloth” is a thrifed scarf. Blush pillow, front porch and side yard lighting, and wall decor is from LampsPlus. Pavers and plants are from Lowes. Mailbox is from Amazon.
I created the door bell garland with extra bells from an Urban Outfitters inspired faux fireplace screen project I’m also sharing today.
