which brackets?

 When I finally finish painting the house, I want to put decorative brackets on the posts to really give it some wow.

There are quite a few types out there but I want something simple as our house isn't really fancy...

I found some I like and put them on the posts using Photoshop (MUCH easier than doing it in real life - not to mention cheaper!). So, have a look and tell me which you think look best.

Option 1.


Option 2.


Option 3. Similar to Option 1 but just slightly different.


Option 4. Much fancier.


I already think I have a favourite but I'm curious to see what others think ...

I started cleaning and organising the casita today. I got as far as emptying my workshop area of all the crap I'd piled up, making it impossible to get in and work and making a start on sorting it out.

I cleaned up all the rubbish and put all the odds and ends into the store room (it'll take me WEEKS to go through all the crap stuff in there to sort it out and put it where it belongs*). I moved the big cubby storage unit to another wall and put a hole in it to be able to access the power point behind it. I removed the square of carpet I had on the floor there and put it under the front porch to stop weeds from coming up. I brought in the metal frame of an old workbench that belongs to Wayne so I can make it into a workbench for myself.

Would you believe he was going to throw it away?

You'll see how that's sacrilege when you see it.

Of course I couldn't put the bench together cause we didn't have any bolts for it, so I had to go into town to buy some. I also need to find the right wood to make a top for it as well as a bottom shelf.

I wasn't able to do all the stuff I had planned cause I ended up being out about half the day having meetings and social gatherings.

Eh. I'm on holidays!

* The dream is to sort all my junk out in boxes so that when I have the need for a spring, I can go to the spring box, or go to the rusty washer box for a rusty washer. Cause you never know when you'll need a spring and a rusty washer.

I can't wait to be able to work in there again and get started on things again!
