Time to spruce up, from the outside in!

Spring is finally here, although we had a mild winter it was still long! Today it is beautiful, and I am beginning to focus on the exterior of my home.

We are having our home painted this spring, the power washing has been done! My house looks very dilapidated at the moment. The peeling paint look,  has been replaced with the exposed wood look. I love distressed and rustic design, but not on the exterior of my home. I hope that my painter will start with the priming soon!

Here is my mudroom entrance, you can not see the peeling in this picture, but you can see the current colors (barn red, tan and black). I am so ready for a change.

Once the house is finished,  I can concentrate on my garden! I hope to make make it shine this year!

I love these gardens they are my inspiration! I might have to go hunting for some architectural pieces to add interest to my garden. Both of these images were found on http://www.thegardenglove.com.
