FROM DRAB TO FAB

***Edited to add that I'm linking this up to Metamorphasis Mondays at BNOTP and The Shabby Chic Cottage Transformation Thursdays

The painter finally finished! I love the color scheme that I chose.

Let's take a look at what the house looked like before:


When we purchased the house we knew that a lot of work was going to have to be done to it to get it up to "my" standards. The exterior was put on the back burner for a year until we received an incredible deal from the painter. While trying to figure out a color scheme, I played around with a very helpful tool on Sherwin Williams website that helped me come up with this:



Here are a few pictures of the house going thru the transformation of becoming our "home"








And here is the after:




Now of course it's my turn to add the finishing touches like new house numbers, outdoor light fixtures and landscaping, but as far as the house I think he did a great job. I didn't get a chance to take pictures of the back so I will do that later today so take another look at this post tomorrow!

What do you think? Much better huh? Did you notice that I don't have the red door?

That first picture must have been from our "heavy snowstorm' last year--I loved that snow! Your house looks great! The landscaping, numbers, and lighting will be like earrings & accessories on an outfit. It's a great time to get stuff planted, too, because everything will be so beautiful when spring rolls back around. Great job.

I just thank GOD'D that I'm still around to see it. It's only been 30day, or 4-5 weeks,168 hours. It's lovely, but it OUT shines your neighborhood as usually. You like to be a trend setter, for those of us who likes to follow! Hey let's move to Janell's subdivision!

wow a big change over! That is cool about the site Sherwin Williams has...I love things that help to visualize. Those are hard decisions to make , but that visual would be very helpful!!

susan said...

Love those colors! Thanks for the tip-I did not know about the SW tool--I am always helped by something visual or tangible--as you can see if you read my post :) You did a great job!
