Well, it’s not really a secret.
If you were driving by our house, you’d quickly notice that…we currently are sporting a two-toned house. Yup, it’s all the rage.
Looks good, right? HA! You see, we’ve been trying to finish painting the house for some time now, but Oregon’s weather has been anything but cooperative. And on top of our full-time jobs, squeezing in painting the exterior of our home has been tricky. With that said, I’m showing you these embarassing photos in hopes that we will finish this weekend, and I’ll have some serious “after” photos to show you. And yes, we are also replacing shingles. Fun times.
The good news is that the front is painted, trim and all. Here’s proof.
How did we pick the color? Well, we saw the color on a house a few neighborhoods away(shown below in the photo), and we knew it was the one for us. I actually slipped a business card in the house’s mailbox (no one was home) and asked if someone could give me some paint information.
Our exterior TO DO list still includes landscaping, painting the side of the house, painting all the trim (not just the front), replacing a few shingles, and refinishing our original 1925 door. What color will the door be? I have to give you some motivation to come back to Restored Style, don’t I?
