House painted!

tbledsaw(5)July 7, 2010

This isn't really garden junk, but it is the place where all of my garden junk goes. Some can be seen in the pics lol

I've been struggling, trying to get my house painted for about 4 years now. I FINALLY got it painted. Just finished it yesterday, after 5 long hot days in the sun. I'm so thrilled with how it turned out, I had to share :o)

What an adorable house. I love the front entry in the corner and the corner porch. Using the scallop siding to make flowers was a clever idea! Nice colors and accents. good for you! We've been painting our house for a long time too. Doing repairs along the way has slowed us down. But you are done! Quite an accomplishmennt.

Thanks guys :o) I have so many ideas for GJ right now that my brain is in a whirl over it. I took today off to just rest, yet it's going on 10:30 PM and I'm itching to go work on my GJ projects LOL Hard to sit still sometimes.

Love your house with its corner porch! Different color combinatons but I like it. Not too wild but not too subdued either. The flowers turned out very pretty. It looks like a giant pretty doll house. lol! Great job! Now with all the extra time, you can create more garden junk to show off your pretty house!

Beautiful, I can just see yoy in white rockers and a glass of iced tea rocking and enjoying a bit of rest after a day of creation. I love it. It looks like a Happy House and makes me smile. Can't wait to see what else you do. Ditto on the chunk of glass. I found one like that but a lot smaller than yours. Wonder what they were in their previous life?

What a beauty, I love that corner porch and the paint just sets everything off perfectly. Those flowers on the shingled part are precious as well as the little girl with the bicycle. I used to live in big old Victorian and I know what a chore the painting can be, Great job.
