Confession time, I've been a little neglectful of the outside of my house in the past couple of years. When we first moved in, 7 years ago, I repainted my porch railings, deck and steps. But 7
East Texas summers and 7 East Texas winters have taken their toll.
Not to mention what the drought has done to my lawn and landscaping.
About a month ago my oldest Son became engaged, and shortly after, my future Daughter in law asked if they could have the wedding at our house, on our porch.
I was thrilled and of course I said "yes" knowing this was just the thing I needed to get my rear in gear, to get it all fixed up.
.The list is long, Landscaping, paint and repair, front and back yards and beds. As well as some house repairs. And we finally got started today with some tear out. Not the prettiest part of the job but necessary.
We lined the expanded landscape flower beds with rocks, and removed some bushes that were just past their prime. My yard used to be green, I promise it did. If we could just get some rain.The list is long, but I'll just keep looking at my inspiration photo's and dream of how it will look in April. She's a sweet gal and has recruited me for some of the "fun stuff" regarding decorating, and finding the props for a fabulous vintage reception. Lost to do, watch for updates. In the meantime, rest on this beautiful finished front porch I found on pinterest. Should I go with black rockers or stay with the white???
Black or white?
Love the extra chair for extra seating
Love this, If only I could make my beds look this good
There will be knockout roses. Drought tolerant and colorful.
And Tyler IS know as the "Rose City"
