Fence, mended.

I now have an extremely sturdy, and equally expensive, replacement fence and gate courtesy of HandyDad! It’s nice to know that when the project is too big for this Renolista, HandyDad is more than willing to help a girl out. ☺️



Tomorrow begins an upgrade to that equally hideous a/c cover thingamagigger (official name of course) which you can see in the foreground of the second picture. We are recycling some of the redwood tri stake to make a bigger, better, more attractive addition to my tiny patio!


Mending fences…

Today HandyDad began a very un-fun project: replacing my gate and fence to prepare for the upcoming painting project happening in my village.  Yay!  Right?  Before:


This thing is old as dirt.  It barely closes, barely opens, and is pretty much on it’s last legs.  HandyDad and HandyBro went to work today on a very rare break from their day job and left me with this gift:


Which is exactly how it currently looks…. Open to the world and all.  At least my neighbors can see my attractive furniture? 🙂  I can’t wait to see what the finished product will look like!  I also managed to pick out a new front door color.  I’m ready to say goodbye to lilac, and hello to cream!



I may be busier than every before, but I am excited to get back on the renovation horse and get my hands dirty again!
