The Learner Observer

Week 4, here we go! Last week we completed the biggest project in this challenge: the front porch. I mentioned it last week, as I painted the doors, and in one weekend my super husband demolished and rebuilt the whole porch. 

This is where we started:

And when we painted the doors and removed all of the huge bushes taking over the front of our house, there was this:

Then the porch came down…


And a new extended version took its place.

I also took on a smaller project and changed our mailbox and house number…

This weekend we’ll replace the lighting out here and hopefully paint the window trim, then we’re almost done out here! I’ll also install some pretty new accessories that just came in – these hooks and this door knocker from Anthropologie are seriously so darn gorgeous! (I linked to them below.)

Now please help me – is there anything I can plant this year to make sure this garden isn’t completely sad in the Spring? Black thumbs over here is clueless!


Don’t forget: check out the other participants in this season’s One Room Challenge!

    That’s a whole lot of progress in week 4. Great work! I like where you are going with this. The mailbox/house number is so cute!
