EXTERIOR.love.

BEFORE
 It's been a solid 7 months since we moved into our home and it barely feels like the exterior has become presentable. This is what she looked like the day we got our keys. The paint hadn't been done for about 10 years and half of the grass was brown.  Two rose trees were literally all we kept in terms of plants.



The fence literally felt like it might topple over. 

AFTER
 Here she is today!  It is amazing what a little paint and some pretty flowers can do.  The future may bring a white picket fence, and I can not wait for all my plants to grow big and wild. The fence has some little vines that will be filled with purple flowers.






The front yard is just the beginning.  I can't wait to show you what is happening in our little side yard. Hopefully this weekend will bring some free time to enjoy it a little!  How are you spending your Cinco De Mayo weekend?

  5. Oh my goodness Kristen, I am in love with your pretty house! It looks so sweet with the flowers planted around and I love the way the white roses match the white trim and fence. Even in it's "before" stage it was cute- I love that style house. But the after is beautiful. What a lovely home you have!
