Railing and window!!!!

We replaced our front railing!!! Wow what a difference!!!!! We had a generic one up before and I am sooooo happy it's gone!!!!! We will take off the other side(rail) which is a wrought iron one(not the cool kind) and move it to our back door since there is a matching wrought iron railing.We need to buy another post for the front that we will change out next weekend.We also replaced the back door window.I am going to paint the door today .Here are photos.....My oldest son helped dad put up the railing so him and dad posed for me after it was done for a photo!!!!! The old railing is leaning by the garbage can.It was so ugly!!!!

We haven't been able to finish any of our projects .We have been busy with other things.Today we are going to replace a broken window from our back door.My daughter broke the window TWO years ago!!!!We had it boarded up and I was just going to replace the door.It is a vintage door exactly like the door in the kitchen that I painted the light blue. I have been looking on craigslist for a while . We finally decided to just replace the window.So that's the plan today.I'll post before and afters later today. Have a great day!!!!!

The garage is almost ready to paint.It has been scraped ,and I think next week I will prime it.I am still not sure what color we are painting it. The weather has been crappy here,it is either raining or extremely humid.Not ideal for painting.I am hoping for some sunshine!!!!!! Here is a preview of the garage.

Weekend get away

Last weekend we went with three of our kids on a road trip!!!! We went to Gatlinburg, Tn. My husband and I attended a two day seminar and the kids explored the town.It was a great trip!!! The Smokey mountains are so beautiful!!!! It has been an adjustment being back home.It feels like we are back to the grind. I haven't felt like doing any house projects.I am in the middle of scraping the garage so we can paint it. We have to repaint our house because our city says it needs a paint job.It doesn't look that bad but I do think the garage really needs to be painted. We are deciding on colors. I am thinking of painting our house a barn red and maybe an off white trim.Right now the house is white with black trim. It will be a dramatic change if we decide on a color. Then again we are still deciding if we can just add siding. It really depends on what price we can get on the siding.So basically we are not sure on what to do!!!!!!! I am excited to see progress on the outside of our house.We are also going to replace part of our fence.Finally we will have curb appeal!!!!
