Facelift: My New Front-ier


We renovated our front house late last year. It took quite a while for everything to be done with. Such long months. All in all we’re happy with the outcome. *smiles

There are a couple of things that I like about our newly renovated ‘concrete’ turf.

First there’s this lovely wrought iron window grill.


Perfect match with a lacy curtain. Don’t ya think so?


Notice the porch lighting?
I love it very very MUCH. It gives the porch a very classic-antique look. It’s even lovelier at night! (with light-shadow effect)


Cost only RM28 (if I’m not mistaken). Chosen by yours truly. Hehe and am very proud of the selection. And if you look at the right, you can see the window is green in color. It is actually reflecting silver with some green and beige color at the corner. Surprisingly it blends well with the overall look.



Then there’s this wrought iron gate.


It has the same pattern design as the window grill. Love it!
This is Chester’s favorite spot. The door to freedom. Haha


This is the mid-section of the gate. Cun ya? Haha

Let’s check out the porch then.

With everything on the ground tiled up… we flora buffs need some space to grow plants. We requested the contractor to build a mini garden bed at the side of the wall.


Right now there’s only a couple of cactuses and spring onions. I’ve seeded a portion of the mini garden with herbs seed. *fingers cross

For the outdoor lights, we have this…



This design is actually very common in Klang Valley nowadays. It’s kinda Japanese style.
Anyhow I love it. My family love it. It was an unanimous vote. lol

Then there’s this corner stone wall that I like very much TOO.


The wall stone is light yellow in color. Good match with the outdoor wall color which is sandstone. Dad said he wanted the ‘Dubai’ color. And the gate, looks like made of wood ya? It’s actually wrought iron too. I wanted an actual wood gate but my mom said NO! πŸ™

Last but not least… the pattern on the front gate. Again, similar design as the house gate and window grills.


They’re taken in different mood to highlight the beauty of the pattern. Now you know why I love my new front-ier. πŸ™‚

Oh 1 last note…

Kong Hei Fatt Choy!!!!!!!

May the year of Tiger brings good luck to EVERYONE!
