Walpole Woodworkers Dreamin’

Let’s have a quick look-see at a really UGLY before photograph.

This is the back of our Dutch colonial, definitely in progress (last summer!):


Disclaimer: it looks a tad better than this now,

but, sadly, not nearly enough to warrant another photo op.

Instead, let’s focus on what awesomeness

I have in mind for that back door’s immediate future,

I’ve never met a pergola that I didn’t love!

What I’d really prefer is a larger pergola

combined with a small-ish patio, like this:

Or this:

YUM — + definitely stay tuned.

I’m not sure we’re going to do a lot of landscaping,

not this spring, anyway.

Tragic, I know . . . but I’ll just dream about landscaping,

Care to join me?

What a stunning privacy fence + arbor! Yes, please!

Omigosh, I’m such a fan of climbing roses! Fingers crossed that our tree-filled new yard has a sunny spot for said-same!

walpole woodworkers moon arbor

This bit o’ divine-ness is called a moon arbor. What do you think of the dark-ish color? I’m a fan!

walpole woodworkers gate

Who can resist the classic white picket fence? This gate spells P-E-R-F-E-C-T-I-O-N in my little world.

And now, for something totally off-topic, here’s a corner of our garden:


I recall fretting over our choice of the dark brown stain for the fence.

I can’t believe how unsure I was, because I love it so much now!

Not only is it striking in spring/summer . . .

. . . it looks fantastic in the snow!

For our Dutch colonial,

I think we’ll stain our fence the same dark gray

we’re using on our garden shed!
