It might seem like I'm jumping back and forth between the front porch overhaul and the kitchen. Oh, wait. That's because I am jumping back and forth between these two spaces. Bear with me as I tackle whatever project strikes me. If I can get the porch and the kitchen done before the first leaf turns this fall, I'll be a happy homeowner.
If you follow me on Twitter, (find me @shouserehab) you might have read my teaser about updating some outdoor curb appeal in our sub-10 degree weather. Well, it was just that. A teaser. If you think I'm spending more than 42 seconds outside with that wind whipping at below zero, you're craaazy. I'm not that hardcore. My skin is delicate, y'all.
However, I was aware of the cold front approaching, and I sneaked* out to Home Depot to grab these to have Matt put them on the garage before the teeth chattering cold made it's way to CT.
If you ask me, curb appeal is one of the most important aspects of a home and should never be overlooked. If you don't watch insane amounts of HGTV like we do, you may not know exactly what I mean by "curb appeal." Curb appeal refers to the attractiveness of a home's exterior. It can refer to landscaping, hardscaping, (stonework, driveways) porches, window boxes, shutters, seasonal decor, mailboxes, etc. Having this little ol' school house look good from the street matters a lot to me, and we have taken great strides each season to make it a bit better.
