Our "NEW" House!!

I hope you all had a great week!! Time spent with family always seems to go way too quick...even when your painting a house! But on that note, to anyone that is thinking of painting their house.. if you have the money to hire someone do it! It took 5 days with my husband, dad, mom and sister helping to finish and we by no means have a big house! It was well worth it though and although there are a couple of finishing touches left, I am so happy with the way it turned out! For paint we used Valspar Duramax exterior paint and it worked amazingly! We only did one coat and it covered great! Here are some pictures of our "new" home!
Here is what our house looked like when we bought it 2 years ago
We fixed it up a little in the 2 years by getting a new roof, painting some of the trim, tearing the bushes out and painting the shutters! 
And the final step, painting the whole house!!
The first picture was taken the day we got done, the second two are from today with some updated landscaping! Excuse the broken blinds our cat loves to break those things!! Also on the agenda is painting the door and the screen door! I will be sure to update you guys when that happens!!

The back was by far the easiest and cleaned up so nicely! There is still some landscaping that needs to be done and I am dying to do a patio makeover to our sad patio but for now it works and looks 100 times better painted! Here is before!

And after!!

 I am excited to share with you some new updates this week!! Our garden is growing huge and I will be sharing more about it tomorrow!

  4. Your house looks great, love the colors you chose. Really looks pretty and yes, painting the house

    Enjoy your new home........

  8. That turned out so nice! I don't even want to think about painting the exterior of our house! Man, that would be a lot of work (painting everything inside was enough)! Such a cute house! Thanks for linking up with Idea Box.
