This post is in partnership with Del Mar Fans and Lighting.
We’ve lived in my house for over 16 years now. I was so ready to give the front of my house a facelift. It was time to update it and give it new life. So I did a few things that helped me to update my house. It wasn’t too time consuming. We did it in a Saturday and love the results. Here’s the before of my house.
The green is what I’m kind of over. I loved it at first but that was 16 years ago. Now I was ready for something new. So we broke out some paint. First we wiped down the shutters. Then we taped off behind them. Then we simply painted them the new, lighter and brighter color.
The second thing we did was update our light fixtures that are probably right at 30 years old. Here’s my old fixtures.
My husband had no problems following the directions on the box and putting up our new Del Mar light fixtures. I love the look of the bronze wall sconce against the brick. They’re so pretty and really stand out. We bought new decorative light bulbs that have that old timey look to them. You can see the incandescent lighting inside the bulb but they’re LED bulbs. Love them.
It’s the little touches like the bulbs that make your updates stand out.
Aren’t they cute?
Here’s my porch after I updated it photo!
The last thing you can add is the changing seasons to your porch. I added a snowman wanting snow and a classic old sled to the porch. I think it turned out lovely.
