We have lived in our house for 20 years but it is 40+ years old. A lot of bumps and bruises. One thing that desperately needed changing was the windows. Many of them were broken, taped up, cardboard on them and in winter, ice was on the inside!! Soooo last week, a dream came true. New windows!! We also did a little face lift on the front porch and added some siding and I made the door a happy color!! Now it doesn't look like a black hole!!! I also love my new pots!! We ate rice and beans so I could buy them....not everyday but I made a menue so we could get them! Ha!!! Anyway...thankful for the transformation!!
