Almost There!!! Well at least until the next project...

It has been a loooong couple weeks. So glad paint lasts 5 years or so. I don't want to have to do this again for a long time.

Well the house is just about finished. All that is left now is finishing up the back. We had to wait on it for a little bit since we were having that side re-sided. But I thought I could show you what it looks like now.

Here's the not so lovely BEFORE

And now the Beeeeautiful AFTER
It took me forever to decide on the color. I went back and forth, back and forth, over and over. I stared at this wall for days!

But am so glad I chose what I did. I ended up not choosing any of the trim colors I had samples of. Instead I went with white.  I love how crisp it looks. As for the whole house I love that you can no longer see the rusty nails in the light colored siding. Every one of those babies was sanded down or power washed and sprayed with Rustoleum primer. Now it is all some delicious red/brown goodness! I am so glad my brother and sister in-law helped us out. We couldn't have done it without them! I don't think Emma or any of the other kids for that matter would have survived.

Now as soon as this project is wrapped up completely, we start work on re-staining and re-covering the back deck! BUSY BUSY! My back aches just thinking about it.
