Project Organized Home~ Exterior Painting

Well, you may have noticed my lack of posting, but let me explain why! We have been so busy trying to make this new house a home. That's harder to do when you are renting, but we have a wonderful landlord! He and his wife, have really been giving us a lot of freedom to make changes to suit our family. He has been paying for paint (of my color choice) on the inside of the house, and just recently, he bought us a bunch of paint for the outside. He let me chose my color here too, and I am just thrilled as I see the color going up on the house! This is how bad it was looking before we started scraping and painting... You can see that it's quite the change, from looking at the bit of blue that we had done in the photo! And below is how it looks currently! Amazing transformation, isn't it?! We have only just begun too. We still have the top trim to do, some caulking to put on, and then another coat of paint. We haven't touched the east and north sides yet either. But pulling up to this, is really encouraging us to keep going! I can just imagine how beautiful it will be when we are done, and I have flowers blooming all over, in the ground and in my pots and baskets!!! YAY!
