This actually is not a new makeover, but I realized I hadn’t shown it to my blog readers yet. If you remember, we turned our little garage behind our house into a small little guest house for the in-laws and any friends that show up:) And now looking at the pics I realized I changed a few things inside as well…I’ll have to update that too:)
But when we started the garage had an itty bitty door to enter…
with the cute classic shutters. Well, in order to enter into the garage you had to duck your head everytime. That gets old. So, we decide to add a cute little dormer over the door and put in a standard height 9 panel door.
and the door stayed this color a long time….until I finally got around to figuring out what color I wanted it. If you remember correctly I wanted a cheerful yellow door like this…
but the hubby vetoed that decision. So instead I decided to go with a classic black door, and stick with our color scheme…
it looks a little better with all of the construction stuff out of the way as well:)
I like the dark pop though…makes it stand out a bit. I also cut a stencil with our address on it to dress it up. I just used cardstock, figuring I probably won’t use that stencil again, grabbed a stencil brush and stenciled it on. A free trick that takes an ordinary door and makes it just a bit more original.
I added some new landscaping as well. I”m excited for the boxwoods to get big enough to hedge together…
and I planted hydrangeas in front of the fence. They should get huge and have beautiful balls of white that I can cut for free fresh flowers!
and…if you’ve been reading with me since the beginning you might remember the dwarf korean lilac tree I was so in love with. The one Ry ruined, but came back to life…and then we moved.
Well…I finally got a new one, thanks so some very sweet people that gave us money for a nursery to get a plant/shrub in honor of Jules.
I love it, and Jules’ rock:)
it’s cute and little and unique just like Ju Ju was:)
Although I love this tree, we are still going to plant a bigger tree on the other side of the house where will be Jules’ spot. Then it can grow big and everyone can see it when they drive in.
