When it comes to the outside of my home, all my attention is focused on the gardens. As I happily attend to the weeding, the watering, the dreaming I very rarely take the time to simple look around and wonder what visitors would think. With this in mind, I grabbed my camera and started taking photos of the house without the focus being on the flowers. What an eye opener! It's amazing what you notice in a picture you wouldn't otherwise notice.
After pouring over the photos, I've come to the realization that my front door area is boring - -
Desperate to add some interest A.S.A.P. I headed out to the garage in hope of finding something - anything to help my poor negletced front door.
An old farmhouse chair, an enamelware bowl and a pack of inpatient's called out to me saying "we can help, we can help"
Weak and slightly giddy with relief, I arranged my finds next to the front door and am loving the results.
The chair is a recent flea market find. Eventually a new coat of paint would be nice, but for now a quick bath was all that it needed.
Yep, that helped a lot.
Down-right cute I think!
Sure, it could use a little more attention, but it's hot out there right now! So hot and humid a person starts melting at just the thought of going outside!
Maybe when it cools down a bit I could work on some of theses issues. . .
A door mat would be a nice addition too don't you think?
You can bet I'll be doing a lot of thinking about this area in the next week.
Any thoughts or suggestions - - because you know it's too hot to think right now!
