*warning you now… there will be a lot of posts about the new house!!*
Here it is the new house….
As you can see its pretty much a blank canvas. I have so many ideas for this house in my head, but when it comes time to put it all together, that’s when I have a problem. Right now, our budget is very small…or nonexistent if you may. So I’m just doing what I can, with what I have, and what is already here.
My first project and what I see the most important is the front door…it’s the first thing you see when you drive and walk up to the house. I want it to be warm and inviting. In the picture above its green, well kind of….when you walk closer you will see that there is barely any green left on the door-it’s so faded and scraped up.
Since I can’t go and buy the new door I want, I have to work with what I have. I decided to paint the doors white and buy new door locks. The ones I originally wanted cost 188 bucks…nope, not spending that on handles for a door that will be replaced eventually. So I bought some cheaper ones and spray painted them, the kick plate and the knocker a metallic bronze color. I also bought new front porch lights. ( I still have 2 more lights to buy, one for over the garage & the other for the side garage door- in due time ) The bricks have also been removed from around the front because my husband hates them- he likes a natural border!!
After painting the door…
Ok, here is where I need and am looking for help/advice. I was thinking potted trees or something along that lines for either sides of the door, a wreath…something!! It just looks so plain, cold and hard! I also plan on re-doing the nonexistent landscaping- so ideas are welcomed there as well.
Now to tell you what I like….
I am in some SERIOUS LOVE with the white, cottage, antique, pottery barn, and country look. A few blogs I stalk and am completely obsessed with are…
They are all oh so very talented and who I have been turning to for inspiration!!!
Does anyone have any ideas or help for me for the front entrance………please?!
