Good morning! Today I’m sharing a home update and show you what we’ve been doing to the exterior of our home. We still have more to do, of course!
(I was editing these pictures at the airport on my way to Cuba and wished I had taken better pictures and more angles of our deck area.)
We have a craftsmen style home with stone and blue and gray siding. It has black shutters and the front door is painted red. I am still not sure if I’m going to keep the front door red or paint it black.
We have been working on the back porch. This was a picture taken before we purchased the home.
This is what it looks like now. We have not started on any landscaping in the front or back yet, we are waiting until late summer.
This picture was taken before we stained the deck. The wood had been left untreated so we knew we needed to fix that right away.
This is a close up of what the deck looks like after we (and when I say we, I mean my husband 🙂 ) stained the deck.
We used Cobat satin in Moonlit Mahogany. I love the way it turned out and as you can imagine we are out on our deck area quite a bit!
We have some amazing sunsets!
Have you been doing any projects on your home this summer?
