Sometime ago I wrote about my struggle to convince himself that painting the fence was a great idea.
I was certain that I would be able to wear him down so that eventually, he would cave in and paint the fence a glorious shade of duck egg blue.
I also promised to keep you in the loop.
This weekend, this happened.
The youngest took down the adornments that lined the fence.
I took ‘before’ pictures.
While Himself stirred the paint – so exciting!
The three of us got cracking with a brush each.
And before I could shout ‘lunch is ready’………..
A pretty shade called Elderflower had been lovingly applied.
I am delighted.
I can’t stop looking at the fence and smiling.
It really makes a massive difference and the lighter colour has opened up the garden.
It is such a small area but it does seem to feel more spacious.
The fence now also compliments the candle holders that adorn the opposite wall.
As the garden is evolving, I feel it is starting to get a cottage style look to it, that makes me very happy indeed.
Have a lovely day!
