Here's what we've been up to lately!
|For my 32nd birthday, Russell built me this beautiful console table! Yes, you read that right: he BUILT it! I think he did an awesome job- Bijou agrees.|
|Here's the big project of the summer: the side porch. This is the day we looked at it, 2 years ago. It's hard to see, but the floor and railings were totally rotten. We referred to this porch as "Death Porch"|
|This is during the 2011 renovation when we relocated the door (or rather re-relocated it, as we moved it to its original position). You can see all the jagged edges of the floor boards here.|
|And, this is now! New floor, new brick foundation, new railings. The peeling paint along the roofline was scraped and repainted.|

And here's what's left to do: the door. First, remove the scary burglar bars, which is harder than it would seem! Those damn bars are bolted on there.
Second, paint the door. Once upon a time, someone thought burgundy would be a great accent color. I HATE it. Not sure what color the door will be, maybe just white, but the burgundy has got to go.
Lastly, this door needs new hardware! :) Ah, the list goes on and on.
Hope your summer has been fun!
