I was planning on posting today about the actual task of painting an old shingled house but instead am jumping to show you the completed porch. Painting shingles has to be one of the most tedious jobs if you are not spraying the house, which we are not. We are pretty much brushing the entire house! But I'll save that boring stuff for another day. Today the porch is done and I like it...a lot.
Some of you mentioned in the comments that this new color (Black Bean Soup) really connects the outside of the house with the inside and you are right. It feels so much better to me.
A few blue and white plates and pillows placed feels good too.
I absolutely will share the painting process with you in case you are thinking about painting your own house. The lowest estimate we got was $3000 to have the house professionally painted. So far we've spent $250 on paint and supplies. We will probably need one more can of white trim but that should do it. So well worth the effort!
Take care and have a beautiful weekend...x
