We had some of our friends over to our new house tonight, and as I was welcoming them, my husband began explaining all the things we were going to do. It seems a bit overwhelming to me, so I thought I would do a little Before and After to give us a bit of a goal. Phase one will be painting the shudders black, then landscaping. Phase two, may take till next year, but we would like to update our columns and change the front door. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
