Happy Sunday everybody!
It's a beautiful day here today and I have lots left to do on my "to do" list. But I am slowly marking things off (and adding more) every day.
You all know how I've been working on the back deck, right? Well, the entry was driving me a little bonkers because of all of the straight lines. I had said earlier that I was thinking of moving my scrolly piece that I had in my "laundry room" to it and I did just that. Of course it sparked all sorts of new ideas for me...which is usually how it goes. I tell ya, I am ADD when it comes to focusing on one task at hand.
So here's the scrolly piece in the laundry room...
I loved it but we all know that lint and dust gathers especially in a room like this so it was no fun trying to keep it clean with all of the little scrolly pieces.
So this is what I did in it's place....I love it!
You all should know by now just how much I love china....
Much easier to keep clean too!
And here is the scrolly piece over the entrance to the deck which can bee seen from our yard and driveway.
It is much prettier in person. I've had so much fun hanging all sorts of iron work back here. I found some old bracket hangers from last year that I had stored away and added them to the corners.
Don't they add a little more charm? I am loving my deck! Mom came up the other day and she said "it's so nice back here." We both really hated it back here years ago...always so hot and you couldn't walk on the deck barefooted without burning our footsies! The white floor has really helped and the roof we built sure has too!
I made bench cushions for the bench areas....they sure feel nice on the fanny. (grinning in comfort)
I found this little birdhouse stored away and it got a new paint job. Hanging it on the window sure did add some pretty pink color....
And here is a project we finished on Saturday. One of those "honey, can we do this?" as I was working on other things.... lol Like I wasn't busy enough!
Of course I will be painting it in a little while. I think it'll add that charm and character I am wanting so bad this year. We are making another one for our other door by the garage. I am planning on trimming out this door also...I think it'll look better once I do that. Please excuse the dirt...the pollen has been awful so I am not cleaning the floor or washing the house down until it dies down a little. Until then, I think I can stay busy don't you?
