This is the front of my house. Taupe and BORING!!! Obviously this was a builder's spec home so everything was picked and finished before I had a say in it. Everything on the inside and outside was taupe. UGH! I've got most of the rooms inside painted now, but the outside is still boring and taupe.
Yes, I covered my house numbers with paper just in case because you can never be too careful. Yes, I am a total overprotective freak about stuff like that and I'm not smart enough to figure out how to blur it out in the picture. Anyway, on to the problems. The bikes obviously need to go to the garage. Hubby painted the bench for me, red of course. I'm thinking of painting the door black. What do you think? I know. I know. I paint everything black, but I just can't seem to help myself. I think I need to go to black paint rehab. I'll get on that as soon as I get out of Golden Double Stuff "Crack" Oreo Rehab. Anyway, I bought some outdoor fabric at Joann's the other day. Wanna see?
I know my reds are a little off, but it's not soooo bad, is it? I ADORE the zebra, of course. Anyway, I plan on making pillows out of those to go on the bench. The other problem?
They are hand-me-downs from my MIL's front porch when she moved here from Georgia. I loooove them, but am undecided about repainting. I like the chippy white paint, but nobody EVER sits in them because they would be covered in chipped white paint. There are little white paint chips all over my front porch. Hubby says they definitely need to be painted. Should I suck it up and repaint them? If so, what color? White again? Black? I'm totally undecided!
One more thing. Please don't tell me to get rid of my fern. I just got it. It screams "southern home front porch" to me and I love it. I have vowed not to touch it, lest it die a tragic death (I have a black thumb), but Hubby said he would take care of it for me.
I know I need something for the front door too. I'm thinking a cute wreath. Maybe a cute burlap number? What do you think?
