Thanks and my Garage Door

Thank you all for helping us with the naming process! We do love all the "fretwork" suggestions, and are now pondering Fret Works or Fret Shop. Its so hard naming a product! We want it to be simple, but easily explainable. So fret works and o'verlay seem to fit that bill, it is what it is.  Hmmm ...

We are in complete overwhelm mode over here now that we realized all that needs to be done in a week!  (We knew, but it really sank in once we announce yesterday.)  If I am a bit sparse here on the blog over this week, just know I am probably stroking out or something.  I will be back in full swing once we launch.

  In the mean time I have some after pics of my garage door. Exciting I know.
But, really it is. my house was such a dark blah when we bought it and had a massive door with two toned (chocolate and yellow- lovely) massive garage door. We replaced it last fall and I'm finally taking pics...


Before...
After...
We have also been  busy landscaping.
Ripping out the old & overgrown and replacing with prettier things. 

We ripped down the fence in the back yard and tore off half the deck to make room for planter beds.

During  rip up/out & paint phase...



And here are my little veggie beds.  They make me happy and help me find my zen.
I have a black thumb too, so I am always happy when something blooms or grows into a tomato or strawberry or anything edible...
I added window boxes to the top of my deck railing and did up a little herb garden.
I feel so domestic.
Ridiculously happy I tell you. Now I must just remember to water!
Have a good week folks and keep offering up suggestions for sizes and names.
We are loving all your comments!
I'll be checking in with you soon.

Ha! I know Heather. It was like a giant fudge brownie with a Pizza Hut Roof. We bought it because of location (beach at the end of street)- really couldn't see any potential in it at first except I loved the retro railings.

I wish my yard looked half as good as yours! You've done so much work, I bet you are really proud! Can't wait to check out the new biz when the site opens!

The transformation of your exterior is amazing!! We are in the market for a garage door too... where did you find yours?

Mrs. Hill said...

Lordhavemercy, that is the single worst garage door "before" I've ever seen that contained an actual, intact door. Wow--bad!

New door is a treasure by comparison. Congratulations!

I don't know that I would have been able to envision that transformation! What a pretty house. Also, what about Fret No More for you your business name?

'LUSH' said...

Such a beautiful transformation! Call me "whack", but changes like these make me sleep better! LOL! Your style choices and your home are impeccable!

What a lovely house! Looking at the pictures, there’s definitely a big transformation that took place. I particularly like what you did to the front of the house and the garage door. It looks quite pretty, like a tasty chocolate bar, really! Now that’s an investment that will last for years. Congrats!

Nice! Even though your garage door is very different from your previous one, nevertheless, it is still wonderful! And, for me, your new door is better than before. It gave your house a fresher and more modern look.
