Curb Appeal 2.0


I don't know many people that can see and image this house the way I have. 
Don't kid yourself, this place is pure D ugly.

but... Hubby got ambitious so just a few weeks ago we rented an airless spray gun and went to town!

plenty of befores!!

 Can we take a quick moment and ohh and ahh over our new fancy upstairs air conditioner?
Basically its sad how little has been done to this home, that condensor on the left is original, yes ORIGINAL.... almost everything in this home was original previous to last summer!!!
even the electrical boxes out here had to be switched out. so we definately preserved them!!
Without much else, than "here it goes" we were off.



When I say the painting went FAST.... it went FAST>>>>>>

like here we were 20 minutes later.

 Here would be the bushes on the left we have cut back from 10 ft tall. 
just need to hire someone to remove these two bushes so we can plant something more size appropriate for this space.


we finished the back then went back with the shield to get all the angles.

After 2-3 days of the paint soaking into the brick

We went ahead and freshened up the paint on the mini fence you can see being painted above. 

Then... we spent the past 3-5 agonizing weekends hand painting everything from the first roof line from brown to cream.
