It’s week 4 and we have had good weather! Hooray!
A lot has been going on here and we are making up for rainy weather. Let’s get started on what has been accomplished and what still needs to take place.
If you are new around here, WELCOME!! Glad you stopped by! I have joined up with over 200 blogger/designers to participate in the phenom called The One Room Challenge!
Oh the awesome architectural detail that will give me a certain je ne sais quoi – well it’s late coming in. They were supposed to arrive early this week but I have been told they will make their way to me on Monday. Here’s hoping!
The hardware arrived! Except guess who forgot to order hinges? Yep, this girl. The “S” hook tie backs are heavy-duty and perfect…if I had hinges or shutters.
The ceiling color is divine. I am so enamored, it’s a color that you could lay on a hammock and just stare at it. Hey! There’s an idea! The Aquaverde color will be gracing the back porch later in the month.
The Wrought Iron color really elevated the secondary doors. I have my husband laugh when I decided to put brushed nickel kick plates on the metal doors. Yeah, I know. 🙂
The garage door hardware arrived and it could not be more perfect. No nails, no holes, no commitment!
This is happening as I type! My dear hubby has been pitching in per the norm (he is such a great guy!) and applying the base color of Pearl Grey. The second color in my diamond pattern will happen early next week. We have something going on everyday so our dear neighbors may see us burning the midnight oil for a few nights.
The cute patio lights are in! We will string cables in week 5.
Our fence is now stained in a HOA approved color and I have to say… I’m digging it. We had a few colors to choose from and I finally settled on BEHR semi-transparent stain in Chestnut. I think it will blend nicely in the color scheme.
The horse troughs are getting a health dose of copper and I will patina the copper. I could have gone a hundred different directions but chose to take a simpler route that will pull the gorgeous blue greens from the car port area into the courtyard.
I still have the herb garden area to build but I think it will be a simple build (hopefully).
This will be one of the last steps in our update.
The Movie Theater:
We purchased a refurbished projector and a DVD player that will pick up Netflix. We tried it out and I was grinning ear to ear! We projected it straight onto the garage wall and measured the image just to make sure we had the size right… it was! I am still working on the screen but it will be ready soon!
Still working on gathering items to create a “found” look. I have a statue that I love in the backyard that will make its way to the area. I also have a sweet, cobalt blue tulip pot that I am toying with turning into a fountain.
There you have it- week 4. We’ve come along way but still have far to go. Guess what?!? We are breaking in the new space next Friday – finished or not! I have a dear friend coming into town and we are going to have a girls night in with sweet friends.
Have a fantastic weekend! Before you leave – check out Week 4 of the Featured Designers and the Guest participants. Week 4 is a tough one – click the pics and see what I mean.
Till Later Friends,
