Baby Steps to a Fabulous Front Yard

I am so excited to get started on our front yard and really give our home some major curb appeal, but that has been getting tossed by the wayside. I tend to get caught up in other projects or just plain lazy un-motivated. I got off work today at noon and the weather was FABULOUS. Like, I wanted to sit outside and bask in the Spring glory all day. So we did. We ran to Lowes to get some black mulch and to give our front yard a MINI makeover. We didn't want to spend a lot, so we figured giving it some new mulch would be the cheapest route. We spent around $16.00 and I feel like it transformed the front yard in such a great way. 


So our to-do list looks like this:
  • Paint the front door (black, red or a teal-ish blue)
  • Plant some colorful flowers
  • Get rid of the rocks and either extend mulch or plant grass in its place
  • Paint the railings and ceiling
  • Replace the doorbell
  • Change out the light hanging in the covered area and next to the garage

Are you getting into freshening up your curb appeal? Starting your garden up? Planting some flowers?


  1. It is amazing what a little mulch can do! Your front entry area is so the porch!

    1. Thank you Elizabeth for the kind words! I love what some fresh mulch can do to your front yard.

  2. This is the exact project I have planned for this weekend! Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Yay Ashley I am so happy I inspired you! Have fun, you will be so excited to drive up to your house everyday. It's like a new house!
