Garage Makeover Reveal

Garage exterior makeover at Farmhouse38.comAs beautiful as it was in this ‘before’ shot (taken many, many, oh-so-many weeks ago) the garage was due for a complete refresh.  Afterall, I needed an art studio, not an art shanty.

After! All fresh-faced and functional.

The front of the studio (as it shall hence be known) got brand new, properly-functioning carriage-style doors, board and batten siding (to match the house), and some farmy decorative accents.

Gotta love that conveniently-named “Farmhouse Red”….my favorite paint color by Behr…. same color as the front door of the Farmhouse.

With the outside finally signed, sealed, and delivered….it’s on to the inside….the Texan thought he was finished with this project….MUHAHAHAHAHA.  Not by a long shot.

    Does he read your blog?

    Sounds just like something I’d say. Birds of a feather?

    • Hahah…yes, he does read it and very often is ‘informed’ of his weekend plans through the blog. But he lets everything slide because A) he is a patient man and B) he likes being known to the world as ‘the Texan’.
