Aaahhh...That's Better

We've lived in this house for two years, and every time I pull into the driveway, I feel like somebody else must live here due to those '80's barn red shutters and doors.
Not anymore! Ta da!
This makes me so happy! I feel like this is starting to look like our house. Please excuse our landscaping- we're having an issue. We planted a ton of new things last year, and nearly a third of them have died. I have several more projects in mind for outside (new lights, railings, etc.), so I will keep you in the loop. I know you're all waiting to see how my house looks :)
A special thanks to my friends at Can Decorative Paint for accomplishing this for us! They are very talented decorative painters (think polished plaster and sophisticated architectural finishes). They could have painted our shutters and doors in their sleep with one arm tied behind their back, but they graciously came over and knocked it out in one day. Thank you Michelle, Davide, and Miguel!


  1. you are very welcome, looks really great and definitely more you!

  2. Looks great + I agree with Michelle - it definitely looks more like Stephen and you!

  3. AHHHHH! I love this and you are right... this totally feels like you :) Can't wait to come see it in person soon!
