A Painted House

To recap -

Then new hardy board ....

The house is finally painted !

No grass in this yard - easy to maintain, plus I am terribly allergic.

Here is a tip that will make your life easier - put a bench next to your front door.  Your groceries now have a "home" while you are unlocking, or you have a seat for taking off shoes or boots, or putting them back on.  Our little church pew also has a lift up lid, where the mail and newspaper go while we are on vacation !  Our bench left the front porch for a couple of days during the painting, and we REALLY missed it !

Next set of pics will be fall porch decorating !!
