My numero uno priority this summer is to take care of this blank canvas that most people call a front yard. I call it boring. Although this is not my entire yard, the rest of it pretty much resembles this blank canvas. I've got a deck out back, but it's pretty darn lame. When we signed the contract on the house, at least there was a tree out front. But, upon closing, said tree had become a stump. Boo. Now it is up to the hubs and myself to plant a new tree, one of those pretty ones with flowers (the guys at Lowes will help me figure out what kind that is, I'm sure).
|Lame city. The chair and my little welcome puppy|
are darn cute, but the lawn needs so love.
|I love the flowers and rocks along the walkway. Obviously, we couldn't|
do a tree where they have it.
|This is more along the lines of what I'm going for. I like the baby|
bushes and rocks right along the walkway. I'd also like to add
some landscaping bricks along the edge, but this is close to
what I want.
|Ugh. If only you'd seen the curtains BEFORE we replaced them.|
They were a lovely black fake leather floor-to CEILING panel.
The previous owner was so proud of them, too. The hubby and I
wanted to take a black light to them, but decided against it.
|Yes, still not totally unpacked nearly a year after moving.|
I would also light to paint the guest bathroom. It's the same flat gray that was in half the house when we moved in. It doesn't look bad in the picture, but up close it's awful. You can see every water spot and knick on the wall since the paint is flat. I sort of like the color, but part of me really wants to switch it up.
|I want to paint it hot pink, but the hubby isn't|
totally all for that.
|The tissue paper flower ball was the centerpiece|
at our wedding! I made all 20 of them, so I wasn't
about to just throw all of them away.
So it looks like I've got a busy summer ahead of me!
