Before and After... Well, Really During!
The easiest, quickest and cheapest way to change the look of a house... shutters! I got on Benjamin Moore's website and uploaded a picture of my house and played around with different shutter colors. (warning - this can be addictive!). I have kind of gone out on a limb with the color, but I was so tired of the "matchy/matchy" color we had, and it really did look the best with what I had to work with.
But they really do look good against the brick, and they make the roof look redder than it actually is and I don't hate it so much!
Now I need some suggestions for a new door color and maybe even something for the garage door. If you have suggestions, please leave them in a comment! I really am stumped on these 2 items and need some help!
The shutters repainted, a new front light fixture and some new house numbers to be installed, hubby painting the upper portion of the house and I will call this "make-over" done for this summer!
I'll post more pictures when it is done!
