Entryway Redo... its a work in progress

Here we are about a month after we moved into our home.

No grass, no landscaping, I never liked the paint and whats up with the pineapple light fixture? I did however put up a screen door as soon as possable.

Well its been a long 2 1/2 year project, and I can safely say it'll probably still be on going. Thats what its like when you are a homeowner!
 I planted grass... plug by every little darn plug! We put up bamboo border and filled it with rock, not just any rock but crushed recycled concrete. I like the look of the mixed colors and the fact that we went green by using a recycled product. We have been painting the house which seems like an over month long project as I posted here. And we finally decided on a new light fixture and house numbers. You can all sympathize with me if you've ever shopped our ONE and ONLY choice for home improvement the beloved Home Depot.

Yea thats how we roll.

And here it is! Im happy.... for now!

It still needs some adjusting and some little touches but its way better than it was 2 1/2 years ago!

Im sure there will be a future post updating the progress on this project.
