Hello hello! I've been out of town on business all week, so I apologize for being a little disconnected. But I'm back at home now and (although exhausted!) ready to pick back up on blogging. I'm looking forward to catching up on my DVR + all of your blogs tonight! : )
While I was away, guess what happened? Our sweet little casa got a new outfit in the form of a fresh exterior paint job! Woot woot. Our realtor recommended that we go ahead and invest in getting her painted before listing the house for sale on the market. And we agreed- she had some spots that were certainly showing her wear. But now she's freshly painted and all sparkly for potential buyers.
Previously, I did pretty good about editing my pictures of the house to hide the "wow, I need to be painted" views, so I'm a little lacking in before pictures. But who wants to see peeling paint anyways, right? On to the beautiful after shots!
We chose to stick with our current colors- white siding + black shutters + red front door. I think it's such a classic combination, don't you? And no, we did not paint the brick base white- that was done by the previous owners. At first it wasn't my favorite- I love red brick! But it's just about impossible to get paint off of brick (we've tried). So we've made it work and I've even grown to love it a little bit. All part of our sweet casa's character.
Have I ever mentioned how much I love our slate + moss covered sidewalk? I love it. A lot.
Here's a never-before-seen shot of the side of our house, all freshly painted.
The back of the house is looking all sparkly and new, too!
Thanks to our paint guy for giving our casa a new paint job! I think it definitely ups the curb appeal and will attract a lot of buyers. Now hopefully some of our beautiful spring landscaping will start coming through to really show off how gorgeous this house can be!
Have you done anything to spruce up your curb appeal lately?
