This past week, I finally finished a project that I have been itching to do since we moved in!! Here's the realtor's pic of our house the way it was when we bought it. It's nice, but I HATED how the trim, the brick, the siding, the door and the shutters were all the SAME color. It needed a little contrast. So, while looking through the unwanted, mismixed paints at Lowes one day, I found a quart of Valspar exterior paint in a blackish brown shade and it was ONE BUCK! Oh yeah.
I painted my door almost immediately and boy did that help! But, I finally pulled off those bland tan shutters last week and painted them. I hung out my 2nd story window to get one pair. It was so worth it!
Ooohhh, I also found this pic taken by the realtor before we moved in of our backyard.
