A few years into our renovation, we couldn’t help but notice the outside of our home. Not very appealing, after all the house is 28 years old! The original color at one time was probably pretty nice but since has faded to a grayish looking color. My husband and I would cringe driving up our driveway. “Poor girl she just needs a facelift.”
Dale suggested we should go ahead and have the house painted. He notified me, that it would be several years before we could replace the siding. (Hmm) You see in my world, I thought we would be done renovating by now! Once my husband informed me, reality set in.
We had to ask ourselves do we want to spend the money. Can we live with the way it looks for several years. We both agreed to have it painted. I am so glad we did! We hired a painter and he got the job done. We do sometimes get help, but not very often! The outside of our home looks much better now and we don’t cringe anymore driving up our driveway.
Be grateful for the home you have, knowing that at this moment, all you have is all you need. (Sarah Ban Breathnach)
We painted the exterior with Behr Ultra PP, Satin, color Gallery Taupe
After we replaced the shutters.
