I have a huge desire to buy an old ranch house. I love them, they have great features and I don’t know I just really want one!! We looked for them when we first moved to Texas, but the houses in our price range were a little too much work (I can’t believe I just said that, but considering the kidlets finally decided to grace us with their presence, it is a good thing our house is only cosmetic work right now)… but, maybe the next house. For now you can all enjoy the work of Kelly at My Dear Trash, and all her hard work to make her house look so great:
Through-out the summer we’ve been working on the front of our house. I’ve shown you six projects we’ve done and now I’m ready to show the overall after photos. If you missed the previous posts go here: Part 1, Part 2,Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6. Our house started out yellow with white trim and shutters and red doors.
We painted the exterior including the doors, shutters, trim and block walls. With the addition of a few decorating projects here’s the finish look…A little wider angle…The whole enchilada…
Did you see my little horse I made in the very right corner of the picture? Here’s a closer look…
I love turning the corner to my house and seeing the transformation. I wish I could show you the before, before’s when we bought the house 8 years ago. We completely dug up the entire yard to bring in irrigation and started with a blank dirt lot. We began by installing the brick sidewalk and surround and have added the trees and plants over the years. Unfortunately, I just killed my laptop which had all my pictures from the last 8 years- it was caught in a rainstorm on the way back from girls camp. No worries, the hard drive is at a recovery center and hopefully they will be able to retrieve most of our information (for a fee a course) For now though, I hope you’ve enjoyed Front Door Friday!
