Instructions

Try a new door knocker, or some house numbers with style. You can update your entrance’s lighting with a new fixture, too. How about reviving those tired plants with a couple of new planters? And finally, don’t forget a cheerful new doormat that will welcome visitors to your home.

Supplies
  • Paint (Brushes, Pan, and Rollers)
  • Door Knocker
  • House Numbers
  • Nails and Hammer
  • Lighting Fixtures
  • Screws and Drill
  • Planters
  • Door Mat
The Back Story

Newlyweds Patrick and Rachel refurbished the interior of their home themselves.  But they ran out of money when it came time to finish their front porch.  Antonio will need his huge team of workers to totally transform their front yard.
