House Painted!

Whew! My house is officially painted! This is a huge relief, and I will be honest it was a much bigger job than I expected. I told you that a friend who used to be a professional painter was helping us with it, but he is just one guy and our house needed a lot of prep, so the prep took about 2 1/2 days alone- with scraping paint caulking, taping and covering windows, then painting the main color of the house (thank God for the sprayer) took about 4ish hours, then we still had to paint all of the trim and the garage- so in all it took about 4 days to get the whole thing done, but its done, woohoo!

Here is a picture before, in case you forgot.
Here are some pictures mid painting project- the house was painted but the garage and trim still needed to be done

And the mostly finished product! One window trim still needs to be painted but here is out freshly painted house!

Now I am just working on sprucing up the yard, planting some flowers, etc. It is slowly becoming more and more like home!

Linked up for the first time, check out the blogs and everyones remodels, before and afters, recipes, crafts, DIY projects, and such!


  1. I like the new color and it makes the house look fresher and more inviting. I bet it will be great once you are able to do your spring gardening! Enjoy your "new" house! Thanks so much for visitng my blog too.

  2. CONGRATS!! What a big project completed. So impressed with you all.

  3. Wow that looks so much better! You took 10 years off the house by taking out all of the overgrown bushes!
