homemakeover: the front yard { plan }





Here is a before picture of our house. It is a cute 1920's cottage style home. (we are actually framing  sidewalk in this picture) We have actually done quite a bit since purchasing our home. I wish I would have gotten a picture of how it looked before we bought it. It still needs a little more work, so let me show what projects I have in mind for it...











This is the photo I found that I absolutely fell in love with. It has everything I am looking for. I love how it has both cottage and classic style. 













First things first, we need to put in some sidewalk and gravel the driveway. After the not so fun stuff I want to build some shutters like she did here:






Then i am hoping to build some boxes for plants to flank the front door similar to this one here:






 Then I want to either make or buy these pillows for my chairs on the porch:




 Then I want to make a sunburst mirror like this one  or....






make a chalkboard to hang up like she did here:








And here is a little mood board I created for the front yard:

Now this is what needs to happen with my home. I am looking to have some homefront construction done to make my property overall seem more appealing. Right now it looks like it came straight from the seventies. What kind of brick did they use for the porch and stairs of the home in the photo?

These sandwiches were really yummy! I always wondered how to get the thinly sliced beef that you get when you order a philly cheesesteak at a restaurant, and luckily I found this recipe which tells you just how to do it!
