So after a good vacuuming, mopping, dusting, and wiping, I moved to the front of the house to paint the steps. Why? Because we started this project on one of our first yard days and "trimmed" the steps, if you will, but never actually finished the top. And all along I've felt like they look dirty. So what better time to "clean" them than the day before we leave for a week's vacation?!
Much better, don't you think?! ...and look how full my Clemson plant is!
And then, since the paint can was opened and the brush already dirty, I moved to the back of the house to a view that has been bugging me since we moved in. It just needed a fresh look. Sooo, I got to work.
Yay! So much better!
Next up, repainting the door and trim. I'll have to tackle that after we get back. I'm thinking black door and white trim, but I'm open to suggestions.
Tomorrow we leave for Charleston with Matt's parents! His sister and brother-in-law are going to join us later in the week.
I'll leave you with a picture from 2003 when we went on our very first trip to Charleston with Matt's parents during high school spring break.
I'm wearing his basketball sweatshirt because it was oddly cold all week, and probably because I thought it was cool- such fun memories. :)
