front porch curb appeal rocking chair brass wall sconce door mat mint green front door

Now that summer is quickly approaching, I know that many of you are probably looking for ways to freshen up your front porches or amp up your home’s curb appeal.

Sprucing up either (or both) of these areas is especially important if you’re going to be putting your home on the market soon.  Millennials are dominating the real estate market right now and two of their top “must have” items on their home-buying wish lists are outdoor living spaces and curb appeal.

So with this in mind, I came across the adorable front porch in the photo above on and thought it would be fun to design a similar look to fit a budget of $500.
