Forgive me for forgoing the free stuff for a minute -- I haven't been in Enid for quite a few weeks and I'm running out of photos (but, never fear, I'm going this weekend)!
In my free time (ha!) I have a little side business called Upstage. I stage houses that are for sale and optimize houses for people who are staying put. It's great fun! Mostly what I do is furnish EMPTY houses that are for sale.
Every once in a while I get a chance to do one of my very favorite things: a curb appeal makeover! This post features a curb appeal makeover I got to do recently. We didn't do it up completely (for example, it wasn't in the budget to repaint the whole exterior) but this shows how much difference a little paint (on the door and the new porch rails) and polish and COLOR can make!
|Porch with new rails, new red door, new mailbox, new house numbers, and new porch light. |
This picture just makes me HAPPY!
|Front facade before.|
|Front facade after (with quite a bit of help from the landscapers)!|
Next idea: red wooden shutters!
Many thanks to Cheri for letting me play with her mama's house and for trusting the vision in my head!
