Exterior Updates

I thought I'd bring back the list I posted 5 months ago, because nothing feels better than crossing completed tasks off. Woop, woop!
  • Pressure wash outside of house, driveways and lanais
  • Dig up existing bushes
  • Landscape front yard
  • Update shutters
  • Update front porch lighting fixture
  • Replace front door or paint
  • Purchase chairs and table for front porch
  • Purchase outdoor pillows for chairs
  • Place potted plants in front porch to bring color
  • Paint forest green trim a different color
  • Paint forest green side door a different color
  • Paint mailbox trim a different color
  • (Newly added) Update brick walkway, since currently it's covered in weeds
  • (Newly added) Replace siding of the house...far far away, but pretty necessary
For today I wanna show you the rest of the front exterior updates completed last week. Lighting has been updated, shutters have been painted, as well as the rest of any forest green trim out there!

Landscape will definitely dress it all up better, but for now it's coming along. I'm ready to commit to at least landscaping the plant bed under the large front window, get rid of the red mulch and get something nice in there. I just need to set little goals and eventually it'll get done.

Any easy-care plant recommendations for a shady area? Definitely looking for some color!

Happy mid-week everyone! :)
