Finally, true to my word, here are before and after pics of our house.

Here are the kids helping coat the horrid blue with primer.

Mid-way point:

Grand finale:

As you can see in the pictures, it was super sunny when we started this project, and when we finished it was really clouding up. That night we had one heck of a thunderstorm at our house and in town. (when the damage was done to the square and parts of the city were flooded) I was so worried our paint job would be ruined.. but thankfully it was dry before the rains hit!

I have a few other outside projects I'd like done to the house, eventually. But, this was a good place to start. Next we need to paint the concrete up front to cover all of the paint we splattered on it and wash the chalk off of the brick where Samuel likes to make his mark. By the time we get all of our projects completed hopefully we'll be putting this house up for sale and moving into a bigger and newer home closer to town. I hope to be able to do that in the next one to two years. We'll see!

Allison, just closer to town. I'm guessing the state police will keep us here for a long time to come. With gas prices steadily rising to insane rates, and us now about to have two kids in school... living on this side of town, this far out, just isn't appealing to me anymore. I love our land, and our neighbors. I really love our house too. We just need another bedroom and bathroom. lol

Looks much better white!--more cheerful, fresher-looking, and larger. I love bright colors!
Good job!

Awesome! Glad the paint dried before the rains - that would have been a bummer.

I was reading about a environmentally friendlier paint somewhere now available at one of the major stores. Do you know what I'm talking about? Have you heard of it?

Ana, no.. I haven't heard of it. My husband didn't say anything about seeing it either. He would have gotten that if it would have been available in our area. Let me know if you find out more about it!
