    Looks amazing! Isn’t it crazy how powerful paint can be? We painted our ranch 3 years ago from a dingy white to a dark grey. It changes the whole look of tge house. CONGRATS!

    I have an UGLY brick house!! But my husband is ADAMANT that painted brick is a bad idea. I tell him it can’t look any worse LOL. I’ll keep working on him. Your exterior is truly “night” and “day!” Looking FANTASTIC!!! Anxious to see more before/after of the interior! Blessings from Missouri!!

      Oh, girl… paint that brick! I know there can be a real struggle with painting it, but it’s so worth it, especially if you hate it! I’m all about loving where you live! Fingers crossed for you! 😉

    Beautiful job! I will be painting our front doors, garage, and window framing as well on your house and was wondering if you sprayed yours or rolled? Recently considering a sprayer for our home projects!

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you! If you’re painting large spaces, like your garage doors, and you wanted to tape off your house, you could absolutely use a paint sprayer. We will be replacing our garage doors this fall, but we thought about painting them the same time as the exterior. I painted the doors and trim by hand. We do love our paint sprayer. We’ve used it several times and it’s made all the difference and cut the time in half! I hope that helps!

    Wow! What an incredible transformation. When I first looked at the house and the condition of the yard, I was like hmmm they have their work cut out for them. Amazing how a little paint, new roof, etc. changes the whole appearance of the house. The color is one of my favorites too. It looks great on the home. I am sure with the new windows and some landscaping for curb appeal, it will have even more of a wow factor. Plus, everyone’s house value just increased with your beautiful home now.

    Definitely like night & day! Oh my! I remember when you first showed us a picture of your home, my thoughts were it needs a lot of tender, love and care. You guys did an awesome job! In time it will all fall in place. I look forward to more updates.
