One Year Housiversary - Porches and Exterior

Monday, October 19, 2020

 Happy Monday!  I'm back with more of our one year housiversary updates.  Geesh! We have really accomplished a lot in one year.  Maybe that means that next year we will just sit back, relax and enjoy our house. Yeah right! Who am I kidding?  Let's get back to the updates. Come on in!



We intended to paint the house navy or dark gray after we bought it, but that plan has been put on hold.  We decided some smaller updates could make a big enough difference that we would be happy with the curb appeal. We had our awesome contractor Erik add molding over the garage door to help fill the gap between the windows, painted the front door SW Naval, added our furniture, and hanging ferns.

Porch Fireplace DIY

Monday, June 29, 2020

I think this weekend might be the first time that I have experienced a DIY fail :(  Lucas and I spent almost 3 hours (not to mention the cost) to create this succulent wall insert. 


I don't hate it, but I don't love it either. Something is just off.  I'm debating on turning it into a wall hanging.  Or adding some sort of tile around the firebox to make it look bigger. Do you have any suggestions for me?

Porch Updates

One of the top appeals of our new house was the fabulous screen porch.  We had a great screen porch on Everstone (our last house) as well, but this one is even bigger. We had one little issue though, it didn't have a wall for Nick's TV but now it does.



As you can see, we had our contractor install a shiplap wall to add privacy and to give us a wall in which to hang a TV. 

Dreaming of Summer

I don't know about you, but after 2 weeks of snow I am dreaming of Summer. There's nothing better than relaxing on the porch or patio with a ice cold beverage.




Winter Patio

Sunday, November 16, 2014

Hey ya'll!  Are you getting in the Christmas spirit yet?  I am!  Although, I don't agree with Santa Claus coming to the mall before Thanksgiving, I must admit I have been humming Christmas Carols.

Have you seen Emily A. Clark's Winter Patio on the Home Depot Apron blog?  I am in love!  It made me think of jazzing up our screen porch for the winter.


Isn't it stunning?!?

Here's what I have to start with:





Since this is our view from the sliding glass door all winter, I think we should give it a Wintery Wonderland feel that we can leave decorated well after Christmas.  Although I love Emily's Red and Black scheme, that wouldn't flow with our grey, teal and white scheme inside.

Here is what I have in mind:
