Oh Porch, How Cheerful of You!

I love the updates that I showed you last week, so I figured I should continue that trend into the front of the house. This post is a bit picture heavy but that's because the  front of my yard is a lot larger and I like to focus on the curb appeal, I will let them speak for themselves. The first five are the "before" pictures this year, and the rest are after the new paint job and accessorizing:

Sebastian had to stay inside because he was barky, he still tried to keep an eye on things.

Ready for the after? Here you go!

To- Do List Items Finished:

  • Repaint peeling paint 
  • Clean the steps
  • Replace old ramp with new steps
  • Plant flowers
  • Repaint from doors and posts
  • Accessorize
  • Organize seating for max functionality

  • Large lattice rug, clearance $7.48 at Target
  • "Welcome" mat, Target
  • Lanterns, Homegoods and IKEA

What do you think of the front porch? I'm totally digging the new rug! Especially since it was dramatically cheaper than replacing all the carpeting on the front, though that does definitely still need to be done. Maybe next year. 


  1. Yay! The exterior of your house looks SO good! I love that rug! I can't believe it was only $7.48! This really makes me want to work on our outdoor areas. They look so pitiful compared to all your pretty rugs and flowers!

  2. It looks SO great! Did you notice that your front porch matches your blog logo?? LOL. Love the pops of color, very eye catching! Great job!


I'd love to hear from you!
