As 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.
A little countrified vignette.
Why, yes. Yes, it is.
My grandfather’s rusty old spurs.
Some primitive wreathes that I can decorate as the seasons dictate.
Decorative wire garden edging hung upside-down along the eaves to serve as a trellis.
The west side of the garage before.
The west side of the studio, after.
The garden-side of the studio got two new, functioning windows, complete with bright shutters, as well as new board and batten siding and decorative trellis edging.
More garden-variety decorative wire edging re-purposed as a trellis for the grapevines and morning glory to dominate.
- Fresh new snappies and pansies to accent the garden walkway along the studio.
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.
