Curb Appeal

Before summer is over, our goal is to up the curb appeal of our new place--while the weather's still nice!  Over the past couple weeks, we've made a few changes.  First, we removed that tired red awning, revealing a surprise:

The previous owners hacked at the molding to fit the awning in.  Sigh.  Another project for us.  For now, the front of the house looks a little bit disheveled. There's nothing wrong with our address plaque, by the way, I just blurred it a bit for these photos.

In the next couple of weeks, we're planning to re-do the trim, remove the storm door, and possibly upgrade the outdoor light fixture (oh, and get a welcome mat!).  On the plus side, check out my planters!

There's one on the porch, and one on the walkway up to the door:

Makes it a little more inviting, no?

More work to do in the yard today!
