Like I mentioned in my Meet the Mumsies post, a year ago (tomorrow), Dapper Daddy Julian, Zoë and I moved into our first home. When we were on our hunt, we fell in love with this house. It has a brick front, hardwood floors all throughout, garage, and a HUGE backyard–most of the items that were on our wishlist. However, there were some things about the house we knew we wanted to update/change.
As I stated, our home is a 1970’s raised ranch that we are tackling one project at a time. We agreed we would take on one major project yearly and minor projects seasonally. Last year, we completed our kitchen renovation (post coming soon). This year we said we decided to take on our home’s “curb appeal.” This included landscaping, painting the siding, new lighting, house numbers, mailbox, and other accessories. Just yesterday, we were able to check off a big TO DO: removal of the huge bushes in our front yard. Here they are: (click the photos to enlarge)
Look at those things!!! So glad to have them gone! We had them removed, then had a barrier made, replaced them with smaller, much more manageable bushes and placed down some mulch. One of these days I will add some flowers, but here is the after: (click the photos to enlarge)
Small change..HUGE difference! You know it looks good when your neighbors are now out doing lawn work LOL
Are you all taking on any “curb appeal” projects? Share below! I would love to hear about it!
