I love the look of ornate frames, but I VERY STRONGLY DISLIKE the typical aged-bronzey goldish finish. Case in point: However, it’s a super easy fix. Hint: it rhymes with “Schpray Schraint.”
I’ve posted about our crazy garden before. The previous homeowners were very conscientious organic gardeners and had worked their way up to a self-sustaining edible and flowering garden. It was amazing when we first saw the house, then it quickly became a tangled, invasive jungle. I mean, kale growing 6′ tall. Bushels of flowering broccoli […]

I go crazy for projects. I love them so much, that I tend to do them over and over, or just never finish. This is a project I can finally say is FINISHED. (For now…ha ha ha.) We bought our tiny townhouse in 2007, and the yard was pretty useless. It’s 11.5 feet wide by […]
