I’m back from vacation. We had a wonderful week at the lake. Thankfully, the rain held off though it wasn’t as warm as we had hoped. It was still beautiful weather. Definitely no complaints.
Since I haven’t don’t a single thing around the house in a week or so, I thought I’d go back and post about something that I did about 2 months ago but forgot to tell you about.
You may remember back in February,l we took down the fence that separated the two sides of the back yard. The previous owners had the left side of the yard as a dog pen, but we don’t really need that.
It helped make the back yard feel much bigger:
But now we had this super nice fence that we weren’t using and a horrible, rotting, broken mess of a fence that greeted our guests in our driveway:
Ain’t she a beauty?
So John removed the pickets, kept the existing fence posts and simply hung the new pickets in it’s place.
I’m sure he loves how I make it sound so quick and easy… ya know, he just swapped them out. Easy peasy.
Then I slaved away for hours at painting and sealing the replacement fence.
We bought these copper tops at HomeDepot for $4 each and I love the look of them:
So now I have a white picket fence and maybe one day I'll have my 2.5 children and live the American dream, but the white picket fence is a good place to start.
Eventually, I’d like to plant some climbing roses behind the fence and if I’m lucky (and the Lord miraculously grants me with a green thumb), it’ll look like this:
