Little Outdoor Lovin'

Our Ugly Duckling is slowly but surely turning into a Darling Duckling. Most of those changes are happening on the inside: fresh paint, refinished floors, clean bathrooms and a new kitchen, but every once in a while I ignore the list, turn the priority list upside down and spread a little love on the outside of our little old house.

Here's what we did over the past couple of weeks; painted the bench, painted the door and window frames, painted the entrance door, moved Griswold our mailbox over to the entrance door, installed new outdoor lighting and created a planter with a blooming, yet shade-loving vine and some sweet potatoes in a red planter we already owned (although I might paint it to match the red door).

The 'crackle finish' of the porch floor are the first signs of us gearing up to paint it; we simply spackled the smaller cracks and screw holes from where the former handrail was fastened with a concrete spackle.



It's all slowly coming together
