Well I've been painting and painting and painting since last we chatted.

Painting list:

A week on the chairs. 

A couple days up on the roof painting details like rusty vent pipes and faux brick, tin chimney. The wood on the garage cupola. That stuff was oddly satisfying in the extreme. I just love seeing those tiny improvements add up to big fresh vibes for the house. (I still have to address the cupola's aged roof and missing-top-weathervane. Looking forward to that!)

A FULL day painting some raised beds for a garden. (And the  perfectionist in me hasn't signed off on that job, so it's not done. {Sigh...why does she do this to me?!?!...because she  knows what looks good, and sometimes you don't get it right the first time. It's frustrating. Especially when you get sunburned in the process. But I'd rather get it right than leave it there bothering me.})

So yeah. We are really focused on the exterior for a bit.
I've brainstormed:
--the light fixtures (currently misfitted, rusty 80's brass ones), 
--the garage door (paint + trim added) 
--and some back yard shutters (need to spray paint some serendipitous thrift store finds for our family room window that sits in front of the patio). 
--Not to mention a few special things for the kids for the backyard.

So we are trying to take advantage of Blake's semester break (which is small since he's teaching summer classes) and I'm trying not to get ahead of myself and lose my mind doing too much.

So for today I will leave you a teaser photo of a painted chair. 

Hopefully soon I can do a backyard reveal.
