Pot Belly Stove Black

After one “soft-black-but-really-dark-gray” paint purchase blunder . . .

. . . Pot Belly Stove black is up + running on our garage doors.

 There’s G.O., having what I call “an admire”.

I love the admire + do it so well!

In the days since these photos,

our garage is being tricked out with white trim, + lots of it . . .

. . . just like my inspiration:

gray garage siding #1

The white trim is really going to make it look GREAT . . .

. . . as is this pair of planters I impulsively bought the other week:

Aren’t they charming as all get-out?

They’re real wood with plastic liners.

Yesterday afternoon we finally bought the boxwoods @ 20% off.

These will flank the garage’s entryway door soon**.

**G.O. insisted that I wait to take them over until

after the white trim’s up.

Slight buzz kill, but oh, well!

Here they are, where I envisioned them . . .

. . . the day I brought them home,

when the garage was still very much in its “before” mode.
