Our house is 130 years old this year, and isn’t she a beauty?!
Well, she had been looking a bit shabby, with faded and peeling paint and stained gutters.
Tony swore he’d move rather than paint this house, with its multiple colors, intricate details, whole house trim, and high peaks. Well, here we are almost 8 years later, and we haven’t moved yet! So… he painted it!
I chose a base color that was a little more gray (Behr Letter Gray) without the brown undertones that were in the old color, but it’s pretty hard to tell the difference in photos.
While Tony did 96.5% of the painting himself, even the high peaks, any accent colors were my responsibility. I also helped with some of the white trim.
The flowers still aren’t finished, but I’ve enjoyed laying in the kids’ saucer swing and admiring our handiwork!
