Here is the result of the sneak peak I showed you. I LOVE it! We hung it on the arch that leads into the small garden at the front of the house.
Here is what it looks like from further away - We painted the picket fence today and the arch got a fresh coat of paint as well! It was very hot and humid, but with Tim, Emily, Lindsay and I all painting it went fast! A few months ago, Lindsay, Rachel and I painted the picket fence with primer so we were already to go!
I think my lamppost needs to be painted next! I also did some other spray painting today as well.
This is one of the projects. I bought this 'cottage' sign at JoAnn Fabric two weeks ago on clearance. It was marked down from $19.99 to $5.99! It originally was white but as soon as we hung it I knew it needed to be red!
I know it is hung a bit oddly, but it is hiding a hole in the siding. My parents are going to be adding an inlaw quarters on to our home, in the next few years, and so we need to wait to reside the house. I like being able to use something I like to disguise flaws.
Here you can see the new flower pot for the front stoop. Don't really have a porch, yet...oh, and you can see a few of the strawberries that we are starting to harvest from our patch.
So, I have been having a bit of fun with the outdoor decor. Tune in sometime this weekend to see what else I have been painting!
