One Room Challenge - Curb Appeal Week 1


Yay!  It is that time again!  Linda, from Calling it Home is once again hosting the One Room Challenge.  This is a platform allowing us all to follow along as 20 design bloggers redesign a space.  She also graciously allows anyone with a blog to link up and share a makeover we are working on!

This spring, in the interest of knocking something of off my home goals list, we are going to rework our front porch and do some fresh landscaping.










Our front porch is about 4 feet deep and has a ground clearance of zero inches, so why it has a railing is beyond me.  We are taking that bad boy off and beefing up the columns so they don't look quite so wimpy holding up the roof line.  We still have a new front door waiting to be painted and installed and I want the hubs to make some board and batten style shutters to replace the ones we have.  We are going to get some new sconces to replace the dated and pitted brass ones and some new house numbers that you will hopefully be able to see from the street.  We have a glider to the right side of the front door that is super comfortable, but I want some tables to flank it.  I'm thinking we will go with Ikea's lindved, and probably paint them.  For the left side of the door we have a piece of granite that I am hoping to again have the hubs build a table base for.  I also want to hang a hammock chair in the left corner.  The kids will LOVE that.  We need to do some cleaning up of the flower beds and get some new things planted.  I can't wait to get it done, it should be just in time for some summer porch time!
