Perhaps you balked when you read the title of this post. Maybe you even rolled your eyes. But if you stop to think about the word resurrection, it's really a fitting description of what must take place after the tougher seasons have made their rounds.
Aside from the obvious religious connection, the dictionary also defines the word as such:
res·ur·rect \ ˌre-zə-ˈrekt \ to bring to view, attention, or use again; to cause (something that had ended or been forgotten or lost) to exist again, to be used again.
Isn't this exactly what happens during Spring? Grass and flowers peek out, birds return to sing and trees awaken. It is in this context that we will speak about our home's curb appeal.
Harsh seasons cab wreck havoc on a home's curb appeal. The above photo was taken at a home located in sunny Florida. Even those folks have their share of bad weather.
STEP 2: Clean, Clean, Clean
STEP 3: Refresh and Renew
A little bit of paint, and a few bags of mulch go a long way my friends. You'll also want to give attention to faded cushions and pillows. Add a new doormat if necessary and of course, lots and lots of green and flowered plants. Notice how Kenyatta of My Design Rules transformed her front yard with these simple changes.
But you don't have to stop there. If you have a covered porch, try adding some comfy pillows, a throw for cool starry nights and a rug. I'd love to stop by the front porch of Kendra of Three Bean Circus (see below) to enjoy a sip of lemonade with her there.
You could even consider adding an outdoor herb garden. Are you a busy parent? Then you might appreciate a quiet place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine every once in a while.
As much as I have enjoyed this year's Whole House Organization Challenge, I am anxious to move into Spring and Summer. There were many successes along the way that I am very proud of. I'll be sure to recap those in a future post.
But for now, thank you to those of you who reached out to me on social media, and commented on this little blog of mine. Blogging can be a lonely journey, but support of you dear readers help keep it exciting. Stay tuned... I've got lots of other goodies in store for you!
