Nothing massively major took place in Gloria’s porch makeover here. But see how adding a couple of chairs and an outdoor rug made such a huge impact? It is much more welcoming now, whereas before I would have thought twice before trick-or-treating at that door, just based on the gloomy picture. Not that I trick-or-treat at my age. Often. Usually I just hide most of my kid’s candy until they forget about it, then I eat the good stuff. What? I’m saving them from cavities.
And here’s a good idea if you don’t feel like drilling through your brick wall to hang house numbers. Put them on a sign! It’s far more noticeable anyway. Simply hang it from a screw drilled into the wood trim up above like Gloria did here. Smarty pants. See more on her blog A Little Paint.
