As you can see, we are still waiting for Spring to arrive here in the "north".
We have no flowers blooming, and our boats are still docked on dry land!
This is obviously the "street" side of our house.
The other side being the "canal" side.
We took down both of the wood arbors. and the fencing that was old and rotted this past weekend, and are replacing it with iron pieces we recently found at a favorite garden shop I frequent.... located in Midland.
The bricks need to be set in, and I bought two more roses that need planting.
It looks so barren right now.
Hopefully, everything will start filling in VERY soon!
The nights get below freezing still...so....we wait.
Another thing I'm waiting for is the sealer for the wood floor.
The floor is ready for the milk paint, but I don't want to do that until I have the finish.
The walls were done to resemble faded barn wood.
We have the old, wide panel wood on the walls. I dry brushed over the blue that was on them and ended up with a faded/white washed effect.
I'm going to use the milk paint on the baseboard trim, after I white wash the floor with it.
Hopefully, the wide trim will be put up along the ceiling, as well.
So.....while we wait for Spring to get here, and finally STAY!!! There are a few things to finish here at the Lakehouse.
I envy all you folks that have flowers blooming, and roses ready to cut for your tables......
"Bloom where you are planted" I keep hearing in my head. Yet my heart yearns for roses.
