{A Touch of Paint}

Tuesday, September 6, 2011
Over this past holiday weekend, Hubby and I really started talking about home improvements. We are in limbo. We have outgrown the house we currently own, but are satisfied at the moment. I haven't found anything on the market that I just have to have, and until that point, I am not going to put my home on the market. Thus, it's time for some changes. I made a list tonight of some things I wanted to change ... these are the "little" changes ...

1. plant fall flowers
2. new door initial wreath
3. paint mirror frames in bathroom
4. take down address number and replace mailbox
5. kitchen counter tops
6. bathroom counter tops
7. fresh coat of white paint throughout house
8. paint front door

And below are the outside "larger changes."

1. Paint brick
2. paint shutters
3. new soffits/gutters
4. planters

I know what a lot of you are thinking ... paint brick? umm, yes. We have been toying with the idea for quite some time. We hate the color, and that with the brown gutters and soffits ... we're over it. To "paint" you a before and after picture ... here is what we have come up with.

Obviously the first house is what it currently looks like, except we have already replaced the roof. What do you think? Have any of you painted brick? Any suggestions? All are welcome :)

Thanks to the weekend, the front door has a freshly new coat of paint, the address has been taken down, the mailbox is replaced, and fall flowers have been planted. I'll be getting estimates later this week for the rest of the larger projects!

You won't be sorry painting the brick. My Dad has done it to several of the houses he flipped and they turned out great!

House painting is very important for many reasons. Especially, painting enhances the esthetic value of the house. Further, painting also protects the house from the natural elements. Best house painters New Orleans
