Exterior Makover of our House

I'm joining Susan for Metamorphosis Monday. Be sure and visit to see the before and afters....

Ok, I am showcasing our before and after of our Exterior of our house. We worked on the inside of our house for years.  We thought a change outside would be a big improvement.

The house is modern looking, but I am trying to change it to be a little warmer. With the addition of rock and paint, we feel it looks so much better.


 A custom gate I had our neighbor build for my husband. It was a Birthday surprise. We have Minature Schnauzers, so I had their profile made in copper. We have since added a third Schnauzer.  A toy. I suppose we need a smaller one added to the gate.
