Let's go back. Waaay back. Let's go back to when we bought this
beauty...sight unseen! Yep, we only knew what the
outside looked like, but that was enough.
We were in love:)
Not sure why those metal gates were ever put on this porch,
but they were one of the first things to go.
Here we are pulling stucco off and finding buried treasure:)
Body and trim painted and starting the rebuild of the columns:)
And here we are today!!!
That was the house squealing. She's sooo happy:)
Here's a close up with the screen door closed.
With the weather hovering right around fabulous,
the front door stays open pretty much all day:)
(oh, and do you see how we "camouflaged" the other door? We're
leaving that door there until the upstairs is done, so all the trades
are able to access the upstairs without coming inside. Score!
then that bad boy will make it's way into the dumpster (buh bye 1985!) and
be replaced by a window:)
I ordered this mailbox. How cute huh??
Not that there was anything wrong with this one, I just thought
that the scale would be better:)
And see the old stamped concrete?
I'm thinking about doing something like this...?

I found it on...Pinterest of course!
