On my long list of spring to-do’s, front entry makeover can now be checked off!
Here is the lovely before pic…..pretty bad huh?
I have arrows pointing to some major problems.
1.) The flag we had for the past couple yrs was so tattered, the wind blew it over the light fixture, and the holes in the flag pulled the top of the fixture off.
2.) Do you ever wonder why all my front door wreath pictures are faded black around the edges?? Well, if you look closely at the wreath pics, you’ll notice my door has been half semi-gloss and a 1/2 satin! I started to touch-up spots last fall, and after it dried, I realized that I had the wrong sheen! It was really cold after that and I just left it until now…..pretty bad huh?
3.) The pots….nuff said.
4.) Boring mailbox
1). I spray painted some awesome light fixtures that my neighbor gave me. (before)
2.) I added my Pottery Barn knock-off front door wreath
3.) I had a tutorial on Dressing Your Planters for Less, where I should my planter painting/antiquing techniques and how to fill the planter with some free plants.
4.) I dressed up my mailbox. You should stop by Romance on a Dime, where I am guest posting on Saturday to see that tutorial.
5.) I also painted the door all the same sheen.
6.) And added a new flag. (I just love a house with a new flag.)
Ahhhh….so much better.
