A little Something White for Fall

Hello all, So after resting for a day(Yea right) I thought I should get started on putting out some fall decorations, Do you remember the junk I picked up during the summer HERE, Well the old tool caddy I dry brush painted white and used it for the center piece for the kitchen table..Love it......And just wanted to point out I decided to paint the inside trim of the door the same color as the cabinets I thought it would tie it all together.... 

I also found this great table cloth at Tuesday Morning, I rarely go to this store,But I'm glad I stopped in.... Have a great day

Finally Done

Good day to everyone, I am finally done painting the house. And I couldn't be more happy with the way it turned out. I felt like I would never see the end of this project. Did you all know that you can paint siding? Well you can , I used Valspar Duramax exterior paint. It has Maximum fade resistance, It also has Mold,Mildew and Algae resistant coating plus self-priming all in one... Great stuff, it made such a deference in the appearance of my home. Also before I show my photos I want to share with all of you a small hit. If you use Satin Finish witch comes out slightly glossy cobwebs do not stick... So with that in mind here we go..

With the new paint I had a new storm door installed in oil rubbed bronze and new decorative hooks put on the shutters. thanks for being patient with me as it took me forever to do this . hope everyone is having a great start to fall.... I am joining Fishtail Cottage for outdoor Fall decor. Come join in the fun

Cracked Pepper

Good morning everyone... WOW I cant' believe how time flies by, I have been so busy with getting ready for fall that I have not had any time to blog, I had the BIG Five O Sunday and I will have to say It was the best Birthday ever. My friends and family came over to celebrate with me It was truly the perfect day... So back to what I have been doing, As you all remember I decided to paint the shutters and door, Well as I loved Kim's idea of a spiced pumpkin color the HOA did not approve it, So I went with Cracked Pepper, Now as you all know that once that went up the house was in desperate need of paint so that's what I am doing now, Sometimes I wonder if I may be crazy..... I also got rid of all the stuff surrounding the house, Today Lowe's is coming out to install the new storm door and then I will start putting out my Fall decorations. So hopefully I will have a big reveal on Monday. So until then keep your fingers crossed that I can get the rest of the house painted... Did you know that you can paint siding???? The make a special  paint just for that. I will blog about that later. So have a great day and wish me luck....
