April reminds us of our environment. Earth Day (4/22), Arbor Day (4/28) and the daily signs that the darling buds of May are on their way. The sky is big, bold and fresh, inviting us out to enjoy our world.
Like most of you, I have lots of projects in mind for my yard, my house and the showroom. After the long cold winter my exteriors need a lot of love. At the very least, our front doors need to be more inviting. Actually, a big family party in August means all of our outdoor spaces need to look better than ever.
I seldom do things the easy way. I love to be different and I love to repurpose. Much to Dan's chagrin, that means a lot of extra work. Inspiration is everywhere on Pinterest, so I now have formulated a plan and need to get the ingredients necessary for making it a success.
This is where I plan on shopping.
