I've been in my first place for 3 years now. That is very hard to believe. It has definitely been a work in progress but I have loved seeing the transformations unfold.
Below is the first picture I took of my front porch. I had removed the old screen door and the mailbox and that's about it.
Then I made my door basket and found these great planter boxes at Target. Added Pencil Boxwood, white Angelina, and Golden Creeping Jenny. All from Pike Nurseries.
And here is what it looks like now. Last month I painted the concrete Benjamin Moore Embassy Green. I was tired of the weird stained concrete porch and wanted to freshen things up. Last year I pulled the mailbox back out of the attic and painted it bright red. It looks great now! My door is painted Benjamin Moore Calypso Blue. It took me forever to pick the perfect shade. I love how it turned out. Plus changing out the hardware was a huge improvement.
I found this adorable doormat at Target this week. I have a small collection of doormats, I admit it! But I splurged on this cutie. Changed up the planters and added red geraniums and blue lithodora from Pike Nurseries. Ready for summer. Red, White, & Blue. Your entryway is the first thing you and your guests see. Make it fun and inviting!
Even the smallest improvement can make a huge difference. What are your weekend home improvement plans!?!
Have a great one!
