It’s always good to remind yourself where you’ve come from… House upgrades are no exception. I have been saying for years that I would scan the pictures I took before buying my house, and I finally did it! I must say, they are as frightening now as they were 13 years ago, and they’ve given me some perspective as we prepare to paint the house and add curb appeal.
So, what’s next for the journey of the outside of this house? Well, some dark taupe paint will start us off. I am still debating on some parts, but I want to paint the vent at the top of the house white. I also want to move the horizontal white board up, so that I can beef up the molding around the windows. I am thinking of adding window boxes, and I plan to add a tiny accent piece of trim around the windows in the color of the front door… which will be a lovely yet difficult to describe shade of blue. I would also eventually like to cover the concrete walkway and the concrete base of the porch in something… probably slate tile. What do you think? I can’t wait to get started.by
