Last year I had so much work done on the house, barn, studio and shed.
The house was in need of a paint job and of course the painters found bug damage to the front and had to repair that first. But I chose fresh, new colors and am so happy with the result.
The house stayed white but the trim is a pale grey, the shutters and 3 doors are a delightful aqua and the front door is a sunny yellow. Very cheery and happy!
It looked so pretty in snow this winter.
My mom even got into the action! No rest here.
The studio got a fresh coat of paint and some repairs done too.
I've always wanted to paint the fireplace a dark color and I finally decided it was time.
And of course that meant the entire room needed a makeover. This is the before.
The after. New gallery wall, new pillows (can't resist pillows!)
The low winter light in this room is so nice.
The dogs know how to soak it up!
And this is the fresh spring look with cheery colors.
The room is available for a visit!
Then as soon as it warmed up a bit, I couldn't wait to tear into this space. What a total mess the garage was in. Couldn't stand it but it was so freezing cold for so long, that I couldn't be out there for long.
I have so much storage now, but I've gotten rid of so much stuff that I have room to spare.
A quiet nook for reading a book.
This is my organized storage for my pretty things that I decorate with throughout the house. Now I have everything within reach.
I bought the paint for this room (guess what color? Yep, a darker grey. My house will be 50 shades of grey before I'm done!) but I'm going to leave this color for a bit.
I've had a lot of changes in my life lately and have felt good about making changes in my home too. I felt I've had a 'reboot' and with spring here, I'm feeling like a rebirth too. I've been out in the garden a lot and am doing some changes out there too. Stay posted!
