Adding curb appeal does not have to cost a fortune.  Sometimes just a little paint and some creativity is all you need.  The is what happened with my front door a couple of summers ago.  In reality we needed a new front door, but that wasn’t in the budget.  However, I did have some paint leftover from another painting project that would at least add some life to our boring front door.  Here is where things started…..not awful but pretty boring and disjointed.

I started by adding a couple of coats of blue paint I had left over in the garage and things started looking up for sure.

Just the paint made a huge difference.  Then I saw this Pinsperation and I knew I had to go to Hobby Lobby and see what they had as far as decals.

I was also Pinspired by this wreath, this mailbox, and these house numbers.

While I was at it I also had The Hubs put in new porch lights.  The old ones were brass and showing their age.  Here is how it all looked in the end…..the wreath and the house numbers will likely be Throw Back Thursday posts soon since they were really projects all on their own.

Have a Great One All!
