For those of you not in the know…the Grant family may or may not be moving in the near future. (Waves hand at the federal sequester and the resultant hiring freeze.) Thus we may or may not be putting the Farmette on the market. I know, all this decisiveness is amazing…it’s killing me too.
I love the Farmette. But she’s really more of a workhorse than a show horse. In other words, she doesn’t exactly grab the eye.
Thus we have embarked upon a program to impart curb
appeal to the old dear. A lot of it may just be spring clean-up (trimming, mulch, etc.). But we hope to add a few other details as well. Unfortunately, she’s not the type of gal who can carry off gingerbread trim or anything like that. Still, we have hope. Even an old farmhouse can learn new tricks.
This is our first project (okay, actually it’s DH’s first project…with my back issues, I’m not allowed to help): Installation of a walkway from the driveway to the front door. There’s always a pathway worn through here, and any rain makes it mud.
I’ll post an after picture…you know…after.
What’s next? I’m thinking a brighter color around those window frames than the faded sage green. And exterior doors to match. Navy blue? Hunter green?
Sound off on what you think our next project should be…
