My front porch makeover

Below is a picture of the front porch when I first moved in. Yikes!!! Please note the giant, overgrown pine trees, falling apart brick porch and front porch light with exposed bulb. I relocated the trees, had a new porch built and replaced the porch light fixture. I replaced the broken screen door and added plenty of flowers. I have plans to buy a new front door, but until then I painted the old, scuffed one robin's egg blue and added a DIY wreath. I'm pleased with the way it turned out and it certainly looks a lot more inviting than the "before"!
