…that sometimes make the biggest difference. And there’s nothing like hosting a get-together to help you take a fresh look at your home and determine some little things that need to happen before the guests arrive. So between tasks in the basement (which will be finished THIS WEEK!), I’ve been tackling some little things like the front porch.
Of course I forgot to take a before shot of our front door, but picture it with a layer of grime on it, dulled in color, and boasting a few scratches from a way-too-agressive wreath that kept catching some air in the wind and banging against the poor guy.
Insert a four dollar upgrade to our front entrance. After a good power-washing and a fresh coat of paint on the door (already on hand)…
…we swapped a new face plate for the doorbell, which before was a lovely shade of yellowed plastic (seriously? who thought that was okay?) when all other hardware (our lanterns, door knobs and locks, etc) are oil-rubbed bronze.
Best four bucks I’ve spent in a while…I feel like you don’t notice the doorbell now – as it should be. Back this week with an amount of basement photos you might expect of a mother with a newborn child. But seriously, it HAS been about nine months (plus!), so I’m quite excited to show you all. 😉
