A Makeover

I can't believe it's been over a week since I posted. Dolly and myself have been sick this last week. Plus my dad and my brother were visiting. They are from Canada, but go down to Mexico every year. They were on their way back up and stopped by for almost a week. My mom is flying home a little later. Here is the view they have in Mexico.









Our view is a little different these days too, except it is the view of the house. This is what it looked like when we moved in 2.5 years ago. I absolutely hate the red (actually more like orange) brick!



Well, my dad and brother are painters, so they went to work and painted the brick and the shutters and door. I love the way it turned out. I am going to do a painting treatment on the brick to make it look more like brick and give it some dimension.




I also managed to hit a neighbors garage sale on Sat. I got these tables and this plant stand for $2 each. I thought they would look good in my patio room.
