Weekend Project: Painting the Garage

The garage is half painted!  We finished puttying, sanding, and priming a couple of weeks ago and now I am finally getting to the painting.  I am really happy with the color.  The walls still have some issues, but since it is just the garage, I am not so worried about it.  Here are my progress pictures:


Puttied, sanded and primed


Painted! (partially)


We also went to Pike Nursery and decided on a tree we would like to plant in the front yard:

I love Magnolias.  They are so ‘southern’.  But traditional magnolias are BIG, which our yard is not.  The Little Gem is a small variety that will only be 20’T x 12’W, a perfect size for us.  I think they are maybe new to the market, so they are quite expensive.  I have my mom keeping an eye out for a deal.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
