oh, what a productive weekend it was! we spent most of our time outdoors planting (48! oh my!) tomatoes. i also managed to sneak in a bit of painting.
if you've been following along, you know we are slowly renovating the exterior features of our home. here's a before & after of our painted brick. i finally got around to painting our robin's egg blue door the prettiest terra cotta orange (toffee glaze by valspar).
although the blue wasn't bad, i wanted a color that matched our painted brick a bit more. i painted our outdoor light the same orange color (light found at a yard sale). we also ripped off our storm door with the outdated brass details. we are now saving up for a simple cedar screen door. you can't beat the sound of an old screen door opening & closing.
a front door isn't as happy without a warm greeting. i found the "hello" decal on etsy. at one recent craft night with a girlfriend, i made the wreath. i love how it matches everything on the porch.
slowly, over the last handful of months, i have been painting our outdoor furniture on our back patio. this space is huge (!) - like bigger than our living room huge - so i wanted to make it pop.
i finished up the last of the painting with this bench & coffee table in a cream & light blue. i also spray painted a couple of old picture frames in matching colors.
i cannot wait to show you our patio once i finish up a few more projects. it's coming together quite nicely.
