A busy weekend

The painting in the stair is finished. I put another coat of "Honey Moth" on the ceiling and two coats on the adjacent wall. It looks pretty good - a major improvement over what was there.
Oh, and no room is complete in the Tiny Bungalow anymore unless I can spray-paint something in it with faux hammered metal. I did the light switch plate here. Very classy but it kind of clashes with the fixture the PO installed.
Since today was incredible outside, I decided to get the rain barrels in place. I changed out the screens and put in new ones. I also got some CMU and have each barrel lifted higher than they were last year. Hopefully this will improve the water pressure. It makes them a little more obtrusive but I don't really care.

The flowers look nice and I cleared two areas to start some more perennials from seed. I don't have a lot of hope for them but I guess we'll see. The tulips (the white ones) are going a little wacky.
I don't think I've seen a tulip open up like these - too funny. Its like they are jealous because they seemed plain next to the purple ones so they thought they'd yell out a little cry for attention. They really fill up the yard. We cut a few and brought them indoors and they really went nuts.

I love the color! The rain barrels are a fantastic idea.
