Paint job


We have lived here in our house for 8 years now in Fort Worth, Texas. This is our first house and I think we will probably be here for a while so I am having a blast remodeling and redecorating. We bought the house new but after 3 kids and buying a cookie cutter house we have a lot of new plans to fix up our house like an HGTV home. (Shawn & I's favorite channel). I am in the process of redoing just about everything from buying new furniture to a new roof (due to hail storm),replacing baseboards, doors, light fixtures and flooring. The house was in great need of a new paint job so we hired a friend of ours to do it and these are the before and after pictures. I sure hope I don't have to do this every eight years. Although I'm sure it will take me that long to get everything done I want to do!

Yes, I love it too! It was so fun driving by the other day and noticing how good it looks. We are going to have to start saving our dimes and nickles... for like the next ten years, so that we can paint our house too!

I really like the colors you picked out! Great job!

It looks great! The shutters definitely add something to the house. Your friend did a great job.

Ooh, I love it! I also think the shutters make a GIANT difference. I need to get the name of your friend who did it - we'll be needing that too one of these days! (:
