Remember our front porch?
The one hiding behind the scary enormous bushes?
We finally got a little more of our redo tackled on it. Two weeks ago we had our entire house pressure washed, including the porch railings and the back deck. I stained the porch last week and then we were ready to really start work on improving the curb appeal of the house. I love our new house numbers - it's hard to appreciate them in the bright light of this photo, but they look nice and more modern to me.
The hanging basket and window box I found at Aldi (who knew?), and the bushes we bought and planted Saturday.
There is still obviously more work to do - we need to fill in some more things in that bed and add a decorative border next to the grass, plus adding mulch for a neater look. I'm also envisioning a chair or two and a small table so maybe we can actually enjoy it.
