Front House & Yard Curb Appeal Makeover

Lian Wright
by Lian Wright
Our poor front was in dire need of a makeover....we finally bit the bullet...
The lawn and the awful trees was my biggest concern...but then soon realized the whole front was hideous...something had to be done!!!
This entry area had been neglected for way too long, even before we bought the house 4 years was like to meet whoever designed this disaster!
I could post a hundred pics of the before..but I'll cut to the chase.. We tore everything out in the front....replaced the windows first...then had a new lawn installed...then I put in a new, clean looking garden...then a new door was installed...the light fixtures, house numbers, new entry deck...stained the pergola, door, deck to match, make it the focal point....
This is the end much cleaner...garage door trim and upper window trim painted black...
And this!! The 'piece de resistance' in my inviting and modern, clean...and a place to decorate with the seasons....and I've noticed a lot of passers by checking it all out...I'm thinking our neighbours are pleased... I know I am pleased and finally proud of my curb appeal!

    Awesome! What kind of wood is it? How did you treat it?

    I'm about to redo our front entry and I'm intrigued by the flooring you have installed is it wood or tile and if it's tile where did you purchase it?

    Amazing! Totally so much better!!! Fantastic job. I'd imagine it was pricey but it needed it and it just upped the value if the house! And cosmetically very appealing to the eye! Love it!

    This is amazing, and just what I would have done. It looks like a new place now.
