The Fence Is Halfway There!

I Finished sanding, staining and polying all of the woodwork on the fireplace, archway, window and DR baseboard. It looks amazing! Since I got all of this complete, I decided to paint the firsplace a charcoal/ flynt color. It looks really good. The couches don't really flow with it but we plan on replacing those this winter. Check out how nicely everything cam out:
Since we were putting up the fence I decided to complete the landscape along the front side of it. It's so cute! I planted some red gnome dogwoods and echinaceas. The dogwoods should get pretty big. I bought the smallest ones available since everything else has taken off so much. I can't wait for them to grow- exciting. What do you think about the pattern of the fence?

I love the arches between the rooms. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it.

I'll second the praise for the refinished moulding. It looks fantastic!

The fence photos are distant enough to make the pattern hard to see exactly. Is it 4" slats separated by 3 2" slats all equally spaced?

Sorry, I can't figure out how to get the full sized picture on there without screwing up the page.

There are 2 small 1X2 slats and 1 2X2 all equally spaced out. I think those wood measurments are correct. We have to have our fence 40% open and 4 feet high so we were trying to get creative, rather than having a boring fence. It is a little hard to see on here- but it looks really good up close. I'll take some close ups this week.
