Details matter!

At least I think so. We finished some pretty cool details on the front of the house yesterday. My husband actually deserves all the credit. All I did was approve of his work. 

Instead of buying new house numbers and a new mailbox (which we couldn’t find), my husband went DIY HGTV style  with what we already had. 

He painted the old house numbers with the same paint we used on the door. Mardigras Gold!

He scruffed up our old (newer) mailbox with sandpaper then painted it with one of the sample colors we bought for the door. Our door was almost that teal color. Once the paint dried, he took the sandpaper and scraped it up a bit to look older and scruffy. Accidentally he left it on the front stoop while watering the lawn and some of the paint started to bubble and crack on the side – and it looked even better!
