My front porch drives me nuts. It is always dirty and dusty, it's narrow, the cement is cracking, the dogs sleep on the chairs, and often bring dead things onto the porch.
I can't change most of that. But that electrical box? That I could do something about.
(the cabinet there holds all the misc sports stuff - wiffle ball, volley balls, jump ropes, sidewalk chalk, bubbles, croquet set, bocci ball...)
To hang the curtain, we drilled into the siding and placed eye bolts in, then hung the curtain from a heavy dow rod run through the eye bolts. We get heavy winds here, so I wanted something extra sturdy.
