Some finished projects.

Things we did to the outside (front): painted the shutters, added flowerbeds (can you say NO landscaping?), took out the dying – and ugly – evergreen bush, got a new, prettier front door.

    Very cool!! The bathroom looks great, and I LOVE the red door–it really makes a huge difference in how the whole house looks from the outside. Nicely done!
