Well, I should probably just say “styling” as I have never styled it before. Gasp!
Let me explain.
My house was built in 1907. Things have evolved a lot since then. There is not parking or a driveway in front of the house, but we can still see faint evidence that a driveway may have been there in the past. The front faces the road, but is hidden from view by trees. The driveway that is here now comes off the road, winds through the barns and ends up at the back of the house. Absolutely everybody comes to our backdoor. There really isn’t anything that hints where the front door is.
Sooo…for years we haven’t given it much thought…until now. I decided it needed a little sprucing up. It just looked lonely and sad.
The area is secluded, but the size of the stoop has always stumped me. It’s so small. Finally I came up with an idea that would expand beyond the stoop. Since it would be a good place to curl up with a book, I worked a chair into the design. I’ll have more on this chair in a later post.
…and dry brushed.
