We moved into this house the day after Thanksgiving so the exterior has been a bit of a mystery for us… until now!!! I am THRILLED to be partnering with The Home Depot to update our backyard spaces. And guess what… I finished them a few weeks ago and we’ve been using the heck out of them!!!!!
Spring in Connecticut is a long time coming and the minute April arrives, I’m always eager to be outside enjoying our yard and generally breathing fresh air! Part of getting ready for spring is always schlepping a bunch of patio furniture out from storage after a long winter, etc. and generally trying to revive everything that’s been put away all winter!
The exterior of our house was one of the first things I fell in love with! Classic details… columns… dental trim… and just a hint of rot. Lots and lots of rot. Grrrr. The previous owners had allowed the trees and bushes to hang over the porches which meant years of snow and rain just sitting on the wood. See how I made over both porches in a weekend!
I’m a blogging loser and am sharing one of my favorite projects again with you here. Before you go thinking I’m just recycling content (which I am…), know this: I am WILDLY better at this whole blogging racket now than I was three years ago. And by wildly, I mean ‘occasionally.’ Also? These are TRULY one of my favorite projects so I made them again, took some more pictures AND added a video.
