Curb Appeal

In all of our excitement to get to the inside of the house, we can't forget the outside! This is what our house looked like when we first found it:

Not bad, but kinda basic. We had/have plans to help it along a bit, and so far we have hung the flag, painted the front door and shutters and had the outside pressure-washed:

We spray painted the shutters black and I think it really helps them pop a little more against the white siding. The red door goes a long way in adding some personality too, and I love the home-y-ness of the flag. We still need to update the porch lights, replace the storm door, finish painting around the sidelights (there is currently a yellow trim around them), and get some nice patio furniture and planters. A work in progress, but already better!
