A Makeover

We have done a little work around the outside of the house lately. Here is our garage makeover

AFTER (total cost - approximately $2 of leftover paint and $15 for house numbers)

Carl trimmed out the garage doors in black and added house numbers and I painted the shutters.

We love the difference it makes!

We also gave our front porch a little makeover.


We stained the front porch "thundercloud" from Sherwin Williams. Painted the door black.
Added a chair and side table

A trip to IKEA

A couple potted plants and an oversized "E". The surface of the side table wasn't quite large enough, so I added a PNG basket that I had

And spray painted it black. I have "rearranged the furniture" out here a few times and now I have it back like this. I. love. how. this. turned. out! It is exactly what we wanted :)

And finally our rhododendron bush has been in full bloom. I love this time of year!

Janie, you have such a gift for decorating! I didn't notice the garage last night, guess I was too tired.

I love it!! Blends so nice with your front porch too. :-)
