Maybe, just maybe, if I write down my top five projects for outside it'll stir up some motivation to actually get them done.
So here we go.
1. Make some board and batten shutters for our three, second-story windows at the front of our house. I already wrote a post a long time ago with some shutter inspiration here. I could do this project, right? A few pieces of wood, some screws, some paint?
|Obviously not my house.|
2. Make two more large window boxes for the two sets of double windows on the south side of our house. We already have a giant one on the front of the house which you can see here. Alex promised that he would make two more (slightly smaller though) so that I could write and post a tutorial for you. Hmmmm, I'm going to go and "remind" him about this as soon as I'm done this post.
|Not my house either.|
3. Repaint the wood siding exterior of our side entry. Right now it is looking g-h-e-t-t-o. The paint is peeling and there are huge chunks of paint that have chipped off. It really doesn't help that it's on the north side of the house that gets zero sun. It's always damp and dark and ugly. I am not looking forward to this project but trust me when I say that it needs to get done.

4. Plant another Annabelle Hydrangea shrub in the front garden. I planted five along the front of the house and three along the side. At the corner of the house where they meet, I've had a Hydrangea tree (because apparently you can't have too many hydrangeas) but the tree never did well in that spot. Even after a few years it had tiny, pitiful blooms. I'll try moving it to a different spot.

5. Overseed the lawn
and plant grass seed in Roary's nasty pee spots. This project is pretty simple and straightforward. I guess I could technically be doing this right now. Considering that I was too lazy to go outside and take my own photos for this blog post I don't think I will be tackling it today. Plus, it's too windy. And the couch is comfy.

Have you finished any curb appeal projects yet? I can guarantee that if you tell me about them I will think you are awesome but I will be jealous at the same time because I am lazy and you are not. ;)
