This may not be the most exciting post..

for blogger land, but for us at Thinkin of Home....we are dancing in the "driveway"!

Bluntly, our driveway was a MESS!

We had had  it!  So we got our our tools, our work clothes, and my hubby started working!!

 This was a big project.  Sweep, wash, power wash, grind cracks, caulk, wash again, prime, paint, let dry, paint again....let dry again!   All in the heat might I add....


Before....see the black stripe....that had been cleaned multiple times and he used every cleaner known to man.....


Now since my hubby is a good man of Polish heritage....shall we say...

TA DA SKI!!


Now, it isn't perfect...but neither are we!  Yes, it is going to get yucky again from tires and stuff.....but, hey......I am enjoying the beauty while I can!!

Thank you Hubby.....WE WORKED HARD didn't we????

It certainly does look nice for now. What a lot of hard work in the heat! We recently visited a farm where they had what appeared to be crushed bricks for their drive. It looked very nice and it was very clean and tidy and easy to walk on. I thought I'd love to have it for my drive, which is every bit the mess that yours used to be.

It's beautiful! Did you use those kits for garage floors? I used one in my closed in patio studio, and it's wonderful.

Hugs,

That's the kind of project that bugs you for a long time before you get to it....then you are so pleased when it's done. I understand!

I'd love to do this in our garage and basement. Was it hard to do? Did you use the kit?
