We are gearing up for some serious front yard changes this spring, so I thought I'd share where we are starting from today.
We built our very simple, yet classic, saltbox style house 17 years ago. We've painted our shutters several times, changed out light fixtures, we even added a little front yard patio. All have served us well, but we always thought the front of our house could be so much more.
We started this weekend by replacing our badly faded shutters with fresh, new ones. The shutters on the right were the same color as those on the left at one time. Talk about an overdue project!
Mr. Bluebird owns many ladders, but for whatever reason, his favorite is this rickety, wooden deathtrap. Only the good die young...
Nice and fresh. Love a classic hunter green and white exterior combo.
I've chosen these oversized onion lights and can't wait until they are installed!
So, phase one of Operation: Sow's ear to Silk Purse has begun! I will share our progress with you all along the way. Please feel free to give ideas of how to accessorize this "new" space!
Thanks for stopping by,
