My favorite Christmas present!

Before and after, don't you just love those?!

I have been wanting to paint our home's exterior since we moved in. And I finally got the green light--'cause it was my Christmas present! Thanks, Babe!

I recommend the Color Smart mobile app by Behr.
I spent a lot of time on this app! Also bought about 7 samples to slap on the back of my house, just to really get a feel for the colors.

In the end I went with: Behr's Smokestack (N220-3) with Cotton Sheets (RD-W15) on the garage and trim and Club Navy (QE-56) on the top trim. And I love it!!!!!


AND after!!!!

My contribution was redoing the outside lights:


(Apply painter's tape--such a pain, but totally worth it)

Spray paint--I love you!

You did such a great job picking the colors. I like your "after" result much better. ;) Looks like a great house!
