last time i checked, my backyard looked something like this. eek!
but when i went to check on it a few minutes later..
those scraggly weeds turned into trees! we couldn't even see out the [only] living room window.
so i bought a handsaw for about nine bucks and put some good old-fashioned elbow grease into it.
in about 45 minutes (spread out across two afternoons--yowza, it was a workout!)
i could see the house!!!
and out the window!!
what a difference!! although, seeing the house means we can see how badly the house needs painting. uh-oh. but, that's okay. painting the exterior is next on our list!!!! i'm so excited!
sidenote: when i painted those swatches next to our new yellow front door, i picked the dark grey and then threw away the swatch. so we've settled (again) on a grey. this time--a similar color called Dark Granite by Behr
