It all started with wanting a “cute” house number sign. And ended with a total front of the house redecoration.
|I used the same idea as the name signs I made for Christmas but bought|
numbers at the hardware store to attach instead of paper letters.
We’ve chosen to go slow in updating and remodeling our home. Partly because of time and money hindrances but also because we want to make sure we know what we really want.
Here’s what the front looked like when we moved it. See those beautiful Esperanza “bushes” that are 10 feet tall. Now, imagine them about 5 feet in diameter by mid summer. I love Esperanzas and have wanted them for a really long time, but it was hard to walk around them.
Here’s what it looks like today. The Esperanzas were relocated to our side fence. I dug up the lilies that were already in that bed, divided them and replanted them. I also moved a small hibiscus from the side of the house to keep the hibiscus in this bed company. They should fill in nicely but not cover the walkway. I painted the iron trellises. They really need to be replaced but spray paint is fine for now. Speaking of spray paint, the rocking chair was spray painted this past summer.
I actually made 2 signs, one for the front porch and one for the garage. These decoupaged signs are so easy to make and I’ve had several positive comments on them from people who stop by. I think I might be addicted.
How are you sprucing up around the house?
