Front Facelift

 

fullsizeoutput_4561Our house exterior has been needing a little facelift as of late. ( i.e. fresh paint, landscaping and power washing)

Instead of using the existing paint colors, we decided to go with a whole new palette and look!

I just had to share!

To see the difference, check out the “before pictures”…

First off, we tackled the landscaping.  The bushes were well past their prime, so we replaced them with some ground cover roses. fullsizeoutput_456d.jpegfullsizeoutput_4569.jpegWe gave everything a nice trim, too.

Next, we tackled the painting of the exterior.  The door and shutters are Benjamin Moore’s versions of Sherwin William’s “Repose Gray.” The same for the trim and fascia but in “Greek Villa.  ”
