It's been awhile...

Sorry for making everyone wait for a new post on the house... we've been busy bees working on it!

We still have several empty rooms, nothing hanging on the walls and a few unpacked boxes. We have made some significant progress though and it is really starting to feel like home. I'll be posting photos of some of our more complete rooms over the next few days. For now, enjoy some photos of our more lively front patio!

The boring BEFORE:

The bright and sunny AFTER:

I've been trying to repurpose as much stuff from the old house as possible. I scored this charming bench at the Raleigh Flea Market a few years ago for $60. It just happens to be perfect here! It could use a new coat of paint, but I'll get to that eventually...

These copper hanging pots were hanging from our old front porch (I have two more that will make an appearance in a future post) and the side table was on our back porch. The only new things you see are the two striped toss pillows, the plant hanging hardware and the actual plants.

Yippee for low-budget improvements!
