Project Curb Appeal (+$100 Lowes Giveaway)

This month as a Lowe’s Creative blogger we are being challenged to bring a little curb appeal to our homes.  I am so grateful for the challenge because I need a kick in the pants to make this happen.  If you are like me then you spend all of your time and attention on making the inside of your house beautiful.  For the past 4 years I haven’t done a single thing to the outside of my house and it was OBVIOUS!  Last year while getting our roof replaced I had them also remove my shutters so I could paint them…ummm…yahhhh…that was last June.  So not only does my house have no curb appeal it looks a little naked without the shutters on it.

The first thing on my list is to change out the dingy, cheap, sun burned, builder’s basic, brass light fixtures with some updated black lantern looking ones from Lowes.

I will also a few pops of color by adding a couple of planters with flowers. But the biggest improvement will be painting and hanging my faded purple shutters to black.  When we first moved in they were an eggplant color.  The sun has sure taken its toll on them.  They became a light purple almost pinky color.  Egads!
