Extreme (For Us) Home Makeover

This weekend we "had" to go to Home Depot for some mulch. One thing led to another and our house looks completely different now. Here is the before:

And here is the after:

The biggest change as you can see is the black paint on the doors. It's actually a very dark blue called Obsidian Stone. It's a little more subtle than in the picture. We decided to change the colour because the brown was the standard paint for most of the garage doors in the area. I hated it. Now our house stands out.. and hopefully in a good way!

We also changed the light fixtures of the crappy faded black fixtures to this:

Our "Commemoration Sugar Maple" was planted last week and I got some red geraniums that I hopefully won't kill (I've had some bad luck lately). Anyway, hope you like the changes... we certainly do!
