Everybody loves a good before & after, right? Especially when it involves minimal effort. As you can see, we’re finishing up some landscaping on the front of our house. I promise to share photos when it’s done, but we can’t take the credit for how great it looks. This is one of those times when we looked at what we wanted to do and then looked at our time and talents and decided we needed to call in some professionals. Best decision we ever made! (Here’s a peek at what the steps used to look like)
I think spray paint is my new favorite DIY tool.
Originally I wanted to get an oil-rubbed bronze (a la Sherry over at YHL) but alas, our neighborhood Ace didn’t have it, so I settled for the hammered brown and have to say I love how it turned out! Nice and shiny with a little texture (don’t look too closely, there are a few drips).
And just to tease you, here’s another look at the new step and front walkway. We still need to plant grass and get mulch for in front of the windows, but it’s coming along!
