Looks a little better don't you think.

On the front porch my husband got a little creative on the floor and did a really neat pattern. (at least I think so) At the time I didn't want him to wast time making it look neat I just wanted him to rush on it and slap the wood down. But luckily for me he didn't listen. You can't really see the whole design in this picture.

On the chimney we stuccoed over it then painted it.

We did pretty much all the work our selves. Mainly because it was cheaper. Not just because we wanted it. But I have to say it feels so much more rewarding after putting all that work into something so ugly and coming away with something so much more beautiful and being able to say you did it yourself. So it has a little bit of you in it.


I know I'm bad at posting but It seems I cant get a moment to my self lately.
Here's a before of the outside of my house. We actually finished painting it last summer but I haven't gotten around to posting it. (I know I'm bad) Any way the front of the house isn't a complete before (there is a little bit of new paint on it)

I know it looks bad
This is part of the front porch.
