When we first looked at our house as a potential candidate, I noticed it had a cute archway set over the stairs in the stone wall. I thought it was really charming but in major need of some TLC. The whole thing was rusted and looked like it had been there since the house was built in 1957. But I knew I wanted to keep it nonetheless.
We moved in late summer so I didn’t have a chance to work on it. Then I was pregnant last summer and not feeling well, so it was neglected for yet another season. I finally decided to tackle it this year.
Armed with two cans of flat white spray paint, I set to work on re-beautifying this lovely arch. Little did I know, I’d need two more cans to finish the job. So off to the store I went to complete my project.
I added some solar-operated twinkle lights to up the charm factor – great for those nights spent roasting marshmallows in the fire pit.
It’s not perfect but I’m happy with the outcome. I’d like to think I’ve given it a new life.
