They just seem friendly and welcoming and invite you to come on in and sit for awhile.
Our front door faces the East and the sun brightens the front patio each morning
and floods the house with it’s warm sunshine.
When we first bought our home I envisioned a red door and so I painted the front door
a dark, cherry red.
It was bold.
It was a little sassy.
and so the door became a matte finish navy blue color. It has stayed that way for probably 5 years.
and also a can of Valspar exterior white.
I also gave the window boxes on our house a fresh coat of gloss black as well
(I’ll share more about how we made the window boxes and their new look in a separate post)
I made the dentil moulding that lines the fascia boards to match the moulded trim
above the door. They were so simple to make- but yes- it was very time consuming for sure
and I think my husband thought I was a bit crazy
I had enough to go around the.whole.house.
But I had an idea of how to fix that and now- they have the look of brass and I LOVE them!
I love the simple but elegant look they add.
Our patio is has two concrete areas separated by several coved steps- it’s nice but it’s a lot of concrete.
A lot of concrete means you need A lot of pots and containers of plants to soften the area up.
I love topiaries by the door and these little boxwood are perfect
I love boxwood and especially in topiary form.
I have several of them actually and love them to put them in urns just about anywhere.
We brought home a lot of flowers for the window boxes.
and then hung it on the wreath holder.
Such a simple refresh for our front porch area but I’m loving how it turned out.
Now if I could just talk the husband into wiring for that second porch light for me…
yep… I’m working on it
