The outside of our house needed painting - BAD! We were those people on the block that had wood showing through the paint, and paint peeling on all sides of the house. Below is when we first moved in - more than 4 years ago now!
And here is the new color!
It is a dark gray with white trim. I like it soooo much better- maybe simply because there is no paint missing from spot on the house! In my dreams we would also replace the roof with black or charcoal gray shingles, and then I would paint the front door a bright yellow.
Maybe something like this from pinterest:
Oh well - it is still so much better than it was before.
Oh also - while Nate and I are usually all about DIYing - we just had to get it professionally done this time... summer is just too short and we already have our hand full of other projects.
