A Blue Sky Ceiling.

I'm sorry for my absence, I've been a very bad blogger. Busy with client work, a fun upcoming project, staining the deck (full reveal on that coming soon!), summer guests and just generally enjoying the beautiful weather here on the island.

In between staining the deck, I've got a few things done around here that I can share with you today. Last summer, my brother tore out my front porch and rebuilt it for me. Then, I painted the railings and the house within the porch. This spring I replaced the lights.

Anxious to get it finished this summer, I tackled the ceiling last week, painting it a soft blue (Benjamin Moore Smoke).

I plan to stain the floor and stairs but we've got some construction going on with new sidewalks and water mains, which in turn mean lots of dust. I'm waiting patiently for it to be finished so I can get on that project.

The new blue ceiling means that now that the green front door we've been sporting for the last couple of years (and you all seem to love) just isn't going to work anymore. Watch for a fun change coming soon!

I also gave the little table that I primed way back in February as few coats of glossy white spray paint and  put it in the living room. It took less than fifteen minutes and I've been putting it off for months.. why?

I have to share my window boxes on the shed in the back yard. When I planted them back in June there wasn't one bloom on them. Now they are enormous! A little Miracle Grow, regular watering and great weather or could it be that maybe I do have a tiny bit of a green thumb after all?

We're into August now.. crunch time. Back to work in a month!
