We bought a couple of new toys from Lowe's, a lawn rake which came in very handy. I think the Mr enjoyed riding around on the mower as opposed to raking. And I got a leaf blower to help me get in and around the flower beds we have all along the front of the house. I even added this cute little Welcome flag that just makes it look so homey.
This plus my new metal chairs, all we need is a few hanging plants and a wind chime, and maybe some planters by the door and this front will look quiet swanky!
We also built a little shelf for behind the washer and dryer. I love how it took this room from just bluh to FABULOUS!!! This is an easy way to hide all those cords and hoses and add a little delight to your laundry room. We just took a plain jane piece of lumber we got at Lowe's, painted it black, and sat it on a couple of L-brackets. It was a really easy DIY project and the Mr got to use his power tools that were collecting dust! (Don't worry little fella's, I have lots to do that will get you back out during the daylight.)
So...what's next for the Fogue Abode? Stay tuned!
