Was really hoping for better directions on painting my front door. Do I nd to sand before hand, what kind of paint,etc. I have a brick home in tx and I can paint my shutters and door easy enough but the  rest is landscaping that I would have to involve my husband and probably some friends.haha  Any articles or help on the door and shutters would be greatly appreciated.

{Door and shutters are metal so I dont want the paint to peel off}

All I can say is...pillows on the front porch?  Very cozy but they must live where there is no rain and no wind...

Hey if I had the shopping part done my husband and I could totally do this in a weekend!  I am a little disapointed in the information (two small paragraphs) that is all the infomation they have without clicking on the links.  I could have done that in my search bar within my msn browser all by myself.  I though it was like a good article with all the details within. Not the case.

That was one of the dumbest articles I have ever read on the internet.  It had little information.  There was no "before" picture.  There was no cost of upgrade estimates.  Basically, there was little to no information that a novice could use.  I feel that if most folks try any of this they will only end up looking at something out of hillbilly heaven or eventually call a real handyman to finish the job.

"Fix Up Your Entry In One Weekend...But You Must Use Lots And Lots Of Time And Effort Doing All The Steps Involved Two To Four Weeks Ahead Of Time."  So, it should really be called something like "Fix Up Your Entry In Several Monthly Installments".


Next time, whoever wrote the article shouldn't insult the public and waste their time with a misleading title.  If it's a legitimate quick weekend project, say so.  If it's going to take quite a while, say so.  Call a spade a spade.

If you want to use packing peanuts, put a barrier of landscape fabric between the peanuts and the soil.  That way, if you have to dig out the soil for any reason, then you won't have to be picking out the peanuts!  Learned this one the hard way!

Thanks for the tips on window boxes...I have been wondering what to do in the front of my home for a while now and considered boxes, but was afraid to get started. Your article has given me the nerve.
