The House

Well, since I haven't spent much doing my digi scrapping or been on the computer too much, I thought I would share some of what I have been doing.  Since we are in the Northeast, we definitely have a summer season and the weather has been wonderful! While we've been enjoying the weather, I've needed a few days in a row without rain to do some outside painting.

My projects right now revolve around the outside of the house. As you can see in the picture below, the house has yellow vinyl siding with teal shutters.  When we first bought the house 8 years ago, the door was also the color of the shutters.  We had planned on taking off the shutters, but they are installed with shutter locks and they leave a hole where all the screws were, so we've just left them for the past 8 years!

You probably can't see too much, but in the bottom right corner of the door, the moulding is rotting and it has now rotted through the door.  So, we ordered a new front door at the beginning of July that will be installed the first week of August.  This was a process because in order to decide on a door, we had to decide what we wanted to change on the house, if anything, just so it all matches.  When the door guy was out measuring, he suggested painting the shutters.  I thought it was a GREAT idea.  Hubby did NOT.  He thinks I'm crazy. What's new?!  So, I've been on a mission to get them painted without removing them. 

So, check back here to see my progress!!

Thanks for stopping by!
