I know my mom already blogged about Richard and I painting our house, but I'm still going to blog about it anyway. I knew she would beat me to it. She is just WAY to fast for me to keep up with. Anyhow, on Saturday we painted our house and both of our parents helped us. We are so spoiled with all the help we get, but truly we are blessed and we are grateful for that. So technically this house isn't "ours" but we are renting it from Eric and Becca. Part of the deal is that we fix it up while we live here so we picked a color pallet and started working. I was so happy because we got two coats on the house in one day. I really didn't want to have to get the mess back out to finish, so it's good we did it all in one day. We love the color and how good the house looks with just a point job. The next step is to bend white aluminum around all the window and door frames. Then we will be getting black shutters, door knobs, and step railing. We are also going to get the doors spray painted white with car paint. So it is a work in progress and we are excited to see the finished look.
Here are some before and after pictures of the house:
