Like the snaggletooth step coming up from the sidewalk. Ideally, the entire sidewalk should be replaced, but somehow I can’t see a brand new sidewalk here, so this project is way down the list.
I have spent a ton of time working on the banks in the front of the house and thinking about what to do with the old concrete steps and the snaggletooth at the top.
I suppose I could take a power washer to them and wash away the age and the moss and then stuff some rocks inside the gaping cavity.
But, I really like it, the age and the color and the moss and wouldn’t the rocks just come back out again?
But the more I look at the snaggletooth step, the more it looks like mouth with teeth. This I don’t like and find it hard to believe that car loads of children have braved these steps at Halloween probably to go home and have nightmares about getting eaten by the steps….
So, I painted a board white, attached some house numbers and glued it to the step.
I couldn’t believe the difference!
It’s like the difference in a person who has bad teeth and gets veneers. When they smile they look like a completely different person.
Scary, Snaggletooth Step GONE!
House Numbers nearer to the street DONE!
and one less scary thing for the trick or treaters…
In fact, we are looking down right welcoming moss and all…
