This weekend, I was looking at our to-do list for a simple project that I could get done in a day. And I started to think a new driveway gate could be the answer.
Then I thought that gate should match the planters in the front yard, which should match the new trim paint color, which should match the door, which should match the house numbers, which should match the mailbox, which should match the door knob. And then I took a nap instead of doing anything on our to-do list.
Realizing that all of this was connected, I broke out the Photoshop to see if I could come up with a plan. (Warning: terrible Photoshop work ahead.)
I showed it to the misses and her response was, "Why does our house look so boring?" Here's what the house looks like now (for the most part) that's not as boring:
We came to two conclusions: 1) The house needs shutters 2) The door is where we can make things pop.
So now I'm looking for mid-century shutters, which should match the driveway gate...
