Home Stylin': Curb Appeal

June 26, 2014

Sharon here. As of late, my home projects list has been ever growing, and for some reason I felt the need to accomplish half of them in one weekend! I don't know what came over me, but I was ready for some newness in my home. Since my husband and I had bought our house last spring, I had visions for what kind of curb appeal I could bring to my house. I never hated the way my house looked, but I knew I wanted something that would make it less the previous owner's and more mine. Because I am quite the penny pincher, I knew I didn't want to do any big projects, at least not at this time. So I knew painting would be a quick and easy solution.

This was my house the day we moved in. When we first went out to look at the house with the realtor, I thought it was the cutest thing. I still do, but now I'm ready for a change. I have been looking around for ideas for a while, but I kept coming back to this adorable house from Cottage and Vine. When I started obsessing over it, I knew my mind was made up. So in one night, I decided I'M DOING THIS TODAY! So Friday night, I ran out to get paint and got to work! The door was easy, but let me tell you, removing the shutters with that GIANT bush was not an easy task. It may not look it, but they get up to about six feet tall on the one side of the house. Check me out!

I'm so little, I stood right on top of them!

JK. Shane helped me put a piece of plywood on top of the bush while I climbed out of the window to get onto it! I was surprised this worked actually, but thankfully it did, and I was able to get it done!

After painting, I knew I needed something on the door to add just another welcoming pop of color, and after shopping around for a wreath and giving up QUICKLY, I decided that I could just make my own and was so happy with the results!

Finally, it had all come together, and in no time at all!
What a happy little home. I hope you enjoyed my little home facelift!
