We've painted the house! I've been wanting to kiss the barn red goodbye since the day we closed.
|In progress shot, notice the windows covered with plastic!|
Luckily, we are happy with the way it looks now. I kind of wish that the decking wasn't going to show so much dirt (we had to go darker to cover up the yellow from the first attempt), but it hasn't been as bad as I had originally thought.
We also took the opportunity to change out light fixtures on the house while we were at it. I think it is a subtle way to update the outside of the house.
Under the deck got new fixtures as well. Please excuse the pollen.
New fixtures by the front door too.
My main request when we decided to build the deck was that it have a gate. I knew that we are months away from having a little one that will be into everything and so I wanted it to be safer.
At this point, we are thrilled that it's finished. I'm looking forward to furnishing the area and using it like a second living room. Owen already feels right at home out there.
