We have limewashed our house, but our entry still doesn't wow us. Today, I'm sharing our small front porch plans to boost our curb appeal!
Earlier this week, I promised to share what project we plan on tackling next and here it is!
Our front porch needs some TLC.
So, today I'm sharing some inspo pics I've found and what we hope to accomplish with this facelift.
Those wonky little planters have seen better days, haven't they?
I would love to create some tall, DIY planters that are super budget friendly.
And that brick floor is crumbling and dated.
After working with thin brick in our boys bathroom, I would love to create something stunning for this landing out of thin brick.
Maybe like this inspo pic from Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.
They installed this gorgeous herringbone pattern and I'm swooning. I plan to reference her blog post to see how to achieve this look!
You should head over to see Susan's full reveal! It's stunning!
We have that ugly plastic siding around the front door and I am dying to rip it out.
I would love to incorporate some cedar that looks similar to our back door.
Isn't that pretty against our Limewashed brick?
I think that would be a relatively inexpensive DIY to try.
I've priced cedar shake shingles and it would be less than $100 for materials.
The last thing we want to do is add some railing to the stairway.
Trent's family sold their business last year and they took down the old railing leading up to the door.
It's still in great shape, so we plan to install them to help create a visual anchor.
And just look at this greenery in this pic from Ballard Designs!
I LOVE this look! I think vines on the brick near the door would be lovely, but Trent isn't quite convinced.
And a cute basket would look so pretty on our front door. I'm going to try to find one to mimic this look.
Okay - so I have to share one more inspo pic.
This house from Decor Pad stopped me in my tracks.
Those. Shutters. Y'all!!
Our shutters are made of real wood and I'm dreaming of taking them down and sanding them one by one!
But that's probably a project for another time, seeing that we have 14 shutters!
It looks like we have to tackle the basics first, but I'm clinging to this pic for massive inspo!
Be sure to follow along as we make this a home you can't wait to enter into!
I will share behind the scenes details over on instagram, so feel free to follow me there.
