I want to take this time to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. It’s a time to spend with friends and family.
I needed to address this immediately! Just look at all those cracks and loose tiles!!
Here are some of my decorations.
As you know, black seems to be the hot trend these days, from windows to door. But how about gutters? Yes, they are trendy.
I recently did my gutters and decided to go black. Black gutter will not show up dirt like light-colored gutters. If you want low maintenance option, try going black.
I love the way it looks!
I needed to get gutters since my house did not have any gutters. I also needed to replace some of the fascia boards as well. My shutter was red at that time.
All done, including painting the door and shutters black!
What do you think?
When I added my new tool shed, it created an area that wasn’t being used behind the shed. So I thought it would be an excellent area to store some hidden items from view and easy access.
I hang up my hoses, ladders, and shovels
A great place to do my projects.
I love the way it looked I decided to paint ALL exterior doors black!! My storage shed.
My Side door.
My Tool Shed.
It seemed unsafe to me, and I was starting to buckle and fall apart—time to replace it.
Buckling on the deck
The previous owner’s dog chewed rails.
I would have loved to use trek decking, but it wasn’t in the budget, so I used cedarwood for the deck and vinyl for the handrails.
I had to wait a year before I could stain the deck. The wood needs to dry; otherwise, it could have a patchy area since the wood may not absorb the stain thoroughly. I used TWP wood stain in Cape Cod Grey. (It has since been banned in NY!!). I’m going to have to find another stain when it’s time.
This was what it looked like before I redid the table. It’s a traditional coffee table.
It started with my front door. It was black, and I thought, why not paint them all black?
So glad I did. I love the way it turned out; so elegant and classy.
I even did the bathroom!
The area I speak of is right where I lean in to write. I guess I wore it out!
I decided to paint it black, to coordinate with the other desk. I primed it first then painted two coats and sealed it with varnish. It came out great. I love the results. It’s like a brand new desk and the cost was just a gallon of paint!
