Before: the porch lacked pizazz...
After: I love the way it turned out & the color looks even better than I expected! Paint color is Labrador by Valspar at Lowe's.
I'm not satisfied with the flower beds. I am considering either landscape timbers or bricks to border the beds & better hold the mulch in (also allowing me to add much mulch to keep weeds at bay). I want alot more color in those beds, too.
So it looks like I still have plenty of work to do in the front yard. Maybe I will add some colorful pots with flowers to fill in the spaces in the beds.
One thing about sprucing up the home and yard is that there is always a new project waiting for you!
