Lookin’ pretty good, huh? That husband of mine does some nice work!
I will say the color is quite a bit darker than I ever really planned for it to be – I was hoping to be able to see more of the wood grain from the street, but I think they turned out to be beautiful, and they add a tremendous amount of character to the house.

And can we just talk a minute about the hardware?
I absolutely love little details like this. Not the most budget friendly add-on, but worth every cent in my book.
Now, what to do about some landscaping…and that front door…? Accepting all comments and suggestions below! 🙂
P.S. Can you find Alice in this picture?
Our neighbor finds it rather hysterical that our house matches our dog (or that our dog matches our house). I have to say, looking at that picture, it is pretty funny… 🙂
