Lorelai: Maybe they spray painted the grass when they spray painted the trees because there’s autumnal foilage and then there’s autumnal foilage. It’s over the top people!

I wanted to post a few before and after shots of some work I did on our house. First up are the light fixtures we swapped out above the garage. We got the replacements for $20 each, and they are so pretty.
We were going to hold off on replacing the porch light, which was bigger, and the matching fixture was $70, which seemed pretty high. So I decided that I would see what a can of 99 cent spray paint would do.
I think it made a world of difference, and you can’t beat that price. I also painted our doorbell to match, because it was an ugly cream color. Eventually we’ll replace the light, but I think this works just fine for now.
Then I got the idea to paint our fireplace doors. I had to get a special high heat paint made for fireplaces, but it was still only around 6 bucks. The smell was terrible, and I’m pretty sure I killed a few brain cells, but I love how it turned out.
Eventually I plan to repaint the bricks white, but I want to wait until we decide on a wall color. I’m thinking either a dark earthy red or a mocha brown. I’m leaning more towards the brown. I think it will make the lcd dlp projector
tv blend in better.
Here are a few pictures of what we’ve done to some of the other rooms in the house. It’s so nice to feel settled in.

There are still quite a few projects we want to do, but I’m amazed at all that we’ve managed to do in under two weeks. I knew I would love owning a home, but this has been better than anything I could have hoped for.
