We, well I guess I should say Bryan, finished the outside of our house.
So here is the before
And here is the after!
For some reason the paint color doesn't look that different in the pictures, but it is VERY different in person. No butter cream here, people.
We were so lucky to get such a good deal on the new brick, and LOVE the color - we think it makes such a huge difference! And I'm so blessed to have such a talented husband who can do just about anything.
And the one and only benefit to having a north facing house is that you can paint your front door black and not worry about it fading since it's always in the shade. I've always wanted a black front door!! The only thing missing now is new shutters & address numbers, but I was too excited to wait for a picture of that!
Lo "helping" Dad clean the pump - she just ran around the front yard with a hose & a bucket, basically in 2 year old heaven.
Mya, for once, actually cooperated by playing in the playpen in the garage while we worked. This was a big shocker since she is rarely happy doing anything we want her to do. Unless we want to hold her and walk around, she's always more than happy to do that.
I do have to end with saying that for the first time EVER I was allowed to hold a paint roller. I was allowed to back roll after Bryan sprayed (only because it was so hot and the paint was drying too fast). Very big day - I still can't believe he let me, and he said that I did a pretty good job! He only went over what I rolled twice.
So next time you come over, you might say to yourself "Hey, is this the Kinyons house? No, it can't be, it's too beautiful and different to be theirs!" But it is, it's my house and I love it!
