Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Here at Walking on Sunshine it was beautiful!
The Colonel was home for 4 days and he sure got a lot done around here!
I don't know where my head was
taking before pictures of the
project that he worked on.
Ever since we put the roof over our back deck, we have been neglecting our front porch.
The Colonel decided to remedy this and washed down the front porch
and re-stain the railings and the floor.
I also asked him to please paint the milk cans and bench we have out there a nice black.
I had originally painted them cranberry to match the shutters
when we moved here 6 years ago.
But I'm tired of that color and thought black would stand out nicely.
And it does!
They look so nice and sharp; we're going to paint the shutters black in the spring.
I say "we" but we all know who does
most of the work around here!
We could really use a few rocking chairs on the front porch a well.
But that purchase will have to wait.
We decided to replace the awful brass light fixtures that came with the house.
They were such bug collectors!!
I couldn't believe the amount of bugs inside these fixtures when they were taken down.
But we have really pretty black fixtures that are not enclosed,
so no more bugs...
I promise to get some pictures posted in the next few days.
We have such a problem with birds around here.
Our front porch was covered with, well, you know!
We did hang up some wind chimes in hope of that working.
But really, does anyone else out there in blogging world
deal with this?
Any advice you could give would be GREATLY appreciated!
Enjoy your day!
