The Fence!

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’………..

imageIt was finished!

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.

Thank you Jess and Caro  for hosting!

Have a lovely day!

  1. Brilliant choice of colour Lisa. White fences / walls always seems to open up a space to make it seem much bigger. Xxx #HomeEtc
