If you’ve been a longtime reader, you know that we use this side entrance to our house more than our front door. It ends up being a place where we congregate often while chatting with the FedEx delivery guy or our neighbors while the kids ride bikes around the culdesac. Here’s what it looked like when we first moved in before we did an exterior makeover:
And here’s what our side porch looks like today! I partnered with Rejuvenation to show you some of my favorite outdoor (and indoor!) pieces and I LOVE how just a few of their beautiful products have completely transformed this space we use so much.
A few months ago, our old exterior sconce kicked the bucket and even started to fall off the wall! Yikes! It was a good excuse to give this whole area a mini makeover.
I found this Matte Cream sconce on the Rejuvenation site and fell in love with the clean lines and the shallow enamel shade. We had an electrician come and switch out the sconce and we were all enamored (and I couldn’t get those dead gardenia bushes out of there fast enough!).
I went to Lowes and asked the guy in the nursery department to help me find something that would survive the full south facing sun, in the middle of the hottest part of the summer! It was a tall order, considering I asked for something colorful and pretty, but this Texas Sage they recommended looks beautiful and can withstand the hottest temperatures and long spells of drought!
I also added these metal house numbers on our door and I love how they are tonal on our black painted door!
Here are all the links to my Rejuvenation additions and a few other pieces that have my heart!
