painting continued…

Well, house painting came earlier than I thought it would. We contacted a few painters and found one that has painted most of the houses in our neighborhood. He said he would put on his schedule for late Fall.

Surprise! We got a text that said he could start next week!

After scrambling to do some exterior work that was necessary before the painting, we were ready for him and his team to start.

The crew washed the house was first, scraped the sides after the house was dry, and then paint.

Wow! What a good coat of paint can do! Our neighbors are thrilled. We had many people stop by and say how great they thought the house looked. I think they were a little tired of looking out their windows and seeing the peeling white and gray exterior.

We discussed colors with the local Benjamin Moore paint dealer and our painter. The house is small so colors that would look good a larger house might not work on ours.

We explained that the look we were going for was “Adorable.” I think we succeeded!

Now, we need to get that awesome front door in place. What color should we paint it!?
