A change

I changed something about the house today that I've wanted o do since I moved in. 
Can you guess what it is?

Here's the before:

And here's the after:

Can't see it?

Again, here's another before:

And the after:

I'm guessing that you figured out that I painted the wood trim around the windows ;)

Here's a quarter of the scrapings that came off.

Ahhh.... so much better!

You can actually tell that there's window trim now.

I don't know what the last owners obsession was with brown, but it spread to the outside as well as the inside and I'm in the process of bringing back the charm that they were trying to cover up. I think it's a pretty good start on the outside, don't you?

There's only 13 more windows to do.... ha!

But for now, it's time for a game of scrabble, relaxing by the fire and perhaps a glass or two of Jameson ;)

Have a good night!


  1. Love the green trim. And Rue, your house is magical!

  2. Love the change - makes the beautiful window stand out all the more. Good choice!



Thank you so much for leaving a comment. It means so much to me that you took the time and I read each and every one. If you don't have a blog, look for a response under your comment. I try to get to them within a few days :)

For some reason, the comment box doesn't always show up, so if you want to leave a comment, replying to someone else's comment seems to work. Also, I've had to switch from safari to chrome in order to comment on blogger, so that might be the issue. If not, you can always reach me via email, located on my side bar. Thank you!
