Updated Exterior House Pictures

We have done quite a bit of work on the exterior of our house. I think it's time I finally share some pictures!

BEFORE: This is the picture of our house from the MLS listing. To be honest, I did not even want to LOOK at this house after I saw this picture. Luckily, Michael convinced me:
AFTER: We painted all of the red a classic grey (I'm much more into neutral colors).We have done quite a bit of landscaping, as well:
We also got a new porch swing!
Some pretty pots of Geraniums for the front steps:
A closer view of the house:

We still need a bit more porch furniture for the right side of the porch, but we are making slow and steady progress. The only thing we aren't quite sure about is the color of the door. Do you think we should paint it an accent color to make it pop? Please tell me what you think!

  7. Wow, it looks AWESOME! It's amazing what a few little changed will do. I've always wanted a cute cottage with a front porch, swing, and hanging plants. I'm green with envy :)

  8. I love it - and I think an accent color on the front door would look smashing! It reminds me of a really cute house we looked at one time when we thought we might be moving to Georgia. Love the porch swing.
