Hometalk and Cozy Breakfast Nook Designs

 
Hometalk is a wonderful group of homeowners and  do it yourselfers, who share their ideas and knowledge.

I go there all the time to get ideas and tips.   You can also share your own projects, as well as ask questions to the Hometalk community
 
 
 I have put together a “Cozy Breakfast Nook Design" board and you can see it and follow me by clicking the picture below.

Outdoor "Refreshing"

We had our house washed, they used a BIG pressure washer on our front porch and drive way.  It looked like a floor sander with a HUGE round disc.  Anyway, years ago, Mr. Thrifty Chicken had painted our front porch with concrete paint.  When they cleaned the front porch some of the paint came up.  So Mr. "TC" wanted to repaint the front porch.





It looks so much better.


From there Mr. "TC" painted the shutters from Burgundy to Black.

 
I love the look of the shutters on the house now.


From there, I painted our Burgundy front door to Black.  It looks so more vibrant.
 


Then, I painted our back door from White to Black.



Our lovely "puppies" scratch on the back door to let us know when they want to come in.   The "White" door was a little dirty, no matter how much scrubbing, it was not coming clean.  
 
Well it was time to freshen things up a bit.

Till next time.  Take care!
