House Tour: Full Frontal

Ready to meet my new house? OK, cool. My apologies in advance: Some of these photos aren’t great.

So, as you can see, it’s light blue. It has vinyl siding, so we won’t be painting it – it’s light blue FOREVER!

One aspect that we loved right off the bat was the front porch. Some giant bushes make it quite private. We’re trimming them. We want to people watch!

The porch isn’t very deep, but it’s decently wide. On the longer side, we want to add two comfortable chairs – either Adirondack chairs or something with cushions – and a little table for cocktails and snacks. You know, people watching fuel.

How much is that doggy in the window?

I’m also hoping to add big planters on either side of the door, and hanging plants over the railings.

See how the porch floor looks different in front of the door? There’s sand mixed into the paint so that it’s not slippery when wet! Cool, right?

The front door is red, but it’s not very noticeable behind the storm door. I’d really like to paint it yellow, a la Love & Renovations/Young House Love.

The house has a two-car garage and a fenced backyard – two very important items on our house search checklist.

The garage is really tight right now, though, due to tons of shelving and storage, and a very large hot water heater. Hopefully, we’ll be able to fit both cars after we clean it out, and potentially upgrade the water heater to tankless.

Glitter and Goat Cheese - Mailbox

We’ve actually already started sprucing up the mailboxes and wooden post. They needed some serious TLC. That’ll be another post, when we’re done!

So that’s the front of our house! Got any suggestions for further sprucing?
