Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe a whole month has gone by since my blogging friends and I challenged each other to up the curb appeal of our homes. We all have accomplished so much in the last 4 weeks and to celebrate we are giving away a gift card for $110 to the Home Depot/ Home Decorators!!! Woo Hoo!!! Scroll down to the bottom of the page to enter :).
Here’s a reminder of what our farmhouse looked like when we started. They was quite a few overgrown shrubs and a poor site line to the front door. Our light was pretty old and dirty and every spring and fall would be home to a nesting bird family. There was also no comfy spot to sit and take in the view of the front of our home. You can start from the beginning here.
Below is the checklist we started with. We were able to complete almost everything except the pergola. Instead of adding a pergola we hope to extend the front porch with a solid roof in the future.
Farmhouse Curb Appeal
dig out and move the shrubs that are in bad spots in the front and place in better locations in the yard add a tree, some evergreens and other small perennials to the front hide the ugly short wall in the front add more comfortable seating to the front porch paint the entryway bench change out the front light to one that isn’t as bird friendly and has more of a farmhouse feel add more potted plants and porch décor add a welcoming sign
- time permitting extend the front entrance by adding a pergola
The first thing we did to change the curb appeal was to add some new landscaping to create a better site line to the front door. We also added a tree to create some much needed shade and breakup the length of our home. Next, we covered our ugly concrete wall with some DIY- lattice.
We added a new barn porch light and some comfy rocking chairs from Lamps Plus.
The pop of black from the porch light and the white from the rocking chairs make such a big difference.
Jason and I created a DIY – pallet sign for our farmhouse front porch to welcome guests and make our porch uniquely ours.
I added a new flag pillow and welcome mat from Home Goods as well as some flower pots and a hydrangea filled watering can to make it even more welcoming.
The pillows on the rocking chairs are from Big Lots. Our new white rocking chairs look great with our newly painted red entryway bench.
