Curb Appeal the Details

Several of you have asked where our light, door knocker etc is from.

So I am back with links to these things. 

And maybe, just maybe if I can get this place all tidy at once I will be back with an updated list of where we are now!

The Pottery Barn Bolton Sconce:

Here is the sconce before the brick!

And after painting. 
Man, paint changes everything!


I love the little "leaves" at the base of the light, so much character and brings some serious personality to this boring spot.


 The knocker... ohhhh my knocker. 

This is the ring door knocker in brass by Restoration Hardware.

I found this gem at a steal of a deal and knew the door needed this pizazz!
{ignore the fact we need a second coat of paint!}


For the hardware I knew we needed something to coordinate with the light and the knocker, the problem being the knocker is brass, and most doorknobs at stores like Lowe's and HD don't come standard in brass. 

and yes this inner casing still needs to be painted white. 
add it to the list.

we went with something similar to this.
{i can't find the link to our actual knob}

And a precious shop in Fairhope, Alabama made the wooden door hanger. 
Kissy Fish Designs is their name!

 The chippendale planters I found at an estate sale!

And the porch pillows were spruced up in a fresh premier prints fabric!!

Left to do:
paint interior casing of front door, 
find a new handle for the storm door
new doorbell
figure out how to "jazz up" or hide, (either one) the lovely box for the home sound system
Gotta love the early 80's!!
continue working in the flowerbeds.

Next up is the flowerbeds, part 1 of 3!
