What I've Been Up To

We have had a redwood deck for 20 years. I decided it was
time for a new look. Didn't happen overnight but I'm thinking the
change is a good thing.

It is Beautiful as always! Great Job! I know you so proud of yourself to have the job complete! Just in time to enjoy the summer!

Beautiful colors! Love The Lamp Post!


RE: What I've Been Up To

I love the gray and white! It has such a homey feel, so welcoming!

RE: What I've Been Up To

Thanks Creek and Nana, the lamp post is old and faded.
I plan on painting it and also the gold outside lights. It's
back to raining alot here tho.

Hope to have a nice deck party on the fourth and enjoy it.


RE: What I've Been Up To

Looks great with your house! Should be much easier to keep up. Enjoy the 4th! Jan

RE: What I've Been Up To

Thanks Jan, hope you have a fun 4th too.

RE: What I've Been Up To

Don't you just love it when an area of your house gets a new facelift! Don't know what the "before" looked like, but your "after" looks great. Nothing like crisp, white railings to sharpen everything up.

My front yard has always been a bit of a disaster. I've done little pick-me-up projects from time-to-time, but I've never been able to make it look very inviting. The other day my husband said something about a small retaining wall like the people down the block and my head started turning with ideas. Hope to follow in your footsteps and get something going in the Fall.

Your picture makes me jealous.

RE: What I've Been Up To

Thanks OA. So agree, a new facelift always brightens things up.
I'm sure I have a before picture somewhere to show the change.
Will have to check that out.

Hope you take a before picture of your front yard and share the
ending results with all of us. I'm so enjoying my yard this
summer. Just baked a fresh ruhbarb/strawberry pie tonight.

Have you and the gkids been hanging out and creating things
you should share? I always enjoy seeing what you come up


RE: What I've Been Up To

Would love to see a before and after!

The after is lovely and looks like a great place for a glass of iced tea and a good book.


RE: What I've Been Up To

Thanks Candy, I would love you to join me for a glass
of ice tea. We spend alot of time on our deck. I will
try to find a before picture to share. Most of the ones
I've found have family in them and they don't want me
to share.hmmm


RE: What I've Been Up To chose such nice soft colors.
I too would enjoy the 'Before'...the 'After ' looks great.
It's nice seeing some more outside shots of your house...I
think the only other time was of your Easter decorations...
We All enjoyed them.
