I love this round up. I actually have seen the painted porch by Bella Tucker in person and it is awesome! It’s so hard to choose what the best part of that front porch is because those doors are amazing too! Lesley

All great ideas! Now, let’s see if I can talk hubby into getting busy! 🙂
Great ideas. I am re doing my front yard over winter, so lots to do and having these ideas have inspired me
we live in a modluar home park, no grass, gravel and big boulders… Looked at pavement for the driveway but pretty costly. Houses are all up on a mountain side, which gives us s great view from our front decks of the valley and fields below.
Trying to come up with something to make it looks special. suggestions?
If you’ll email me or message us over on Facebook with your question and a photo or two, I’d be happy to pass your question along to our very helpful followers 🙂
Have to be careful with window boxes because many homeowner insurance policies say no plants w/in 2 feet of the home’s structure. I love them but our insurance said no.
Thanks for that info, Abby.
