Hey guys – Happy Friday!
Awesome news, our front yard is finished! Well, for this year. I do still need to finish painting the garage door but the yard…the yard is dunzo (When was the last time you heard dunzo...I've been watching Laguna Beach reruns all morning. I swear I mean to change the channel a million times but I just couldn't click away).
In case your think that the above isn’t all that impressive, this is what we started with. (the below is an old phone pic through a car window, quality is bad…subject is worse)
Then we took off those ridiculous awnings.
Then the shutters and railings went black.
Then our leaky roof went to a dark charcoal shingle and well removed the three massive maples on our property. That was something that had to be done, they were over taking our yard and the front one had roots growing into our sewer line.
And this is where we are now. We also replaced our gutters. Big surprise – they went black as well.
And that’s our little evolution so far! Once it’s truly finished for the summer I’ll take some better after pictures and details on plants.
In the meantime, Chris has earned himself some major points for tackling all of this by himself in less than a weeks time.
I hope you enjoy your weekend! I’m off to tailgate for a Dave Matthews show tonight and then my step-dad’s retirement/birthday party tomorrow. I’m sure a large amount of Instagram pics are about to start once the girls show up!
What are you guys doing this weekend? Maybe tackling your yard?
