A Little Curb Appeal

I'm a little embarrassed to show you this picture, but this is what our front door looked like about 2 weeks ago (minus the piece of wood sitting there) What's even more embarrassing about it is we put a new door, screen door, painted the trim and siding, put a new door bell and painted the stoop.  Yep, it was even worse then this picture shows, if you can imagine that?!

We finally saved up enough and had a weekend without rain to fix the nasty.  Here is Ryan, my dad and Ryan's best friend Justin who we are lucky enough to be neighbors with.
I just think it is so neat to see my husband and my dad work together, the only two men I ever loved:)

Here is the finished project, I just couldn't wait to put my little $15 bistro table on the stoop, I am in love with it!  What do you think?



  1. It looks great Jaymee! Say, is your husband for hire? Ha!

  2. Thank you! He loves doing all that stuff, which makes it easy to have a big honey do list:) Love your nursery!! When are you due?

  3. Wow, that is a total transformation.

  4. Looks awesome, and you're right, there is something about having the 2 men you love working together! :)

  5. What a transformation! You should link it to my Front Porch Party! Going on now until Friday. http://www.elephantstrunkllb.com/2011/06/summer-safari-front-porch-fun.html

  6. Wow!!! 100% better! You're little table was a STEAL at $15!! :) Stopping by from Somewhat Simple.

  7. Wow, it looks great! Looks like a warm, friendly entrance! I especially like the potted plants and the sign - the bistro table brings lots of personality to the porch. Great job!
