Showing the Exterior Some Love…
Dark Blue Gray Exterior House Siding
It’s been a couple of months now since painting commenced but in our house it’s still dubbed “the green house”. The cute little name must’ve stuck but the color absolutely did not! Although the interior was far from complete at the time, Mark and I could not handle the exterior any longer so in August, we painted it blue. Kind of blue and kind of grey. To see the full “before” tour read, “Our Historic Home Tour“. A color that took me no less than 15 sample quarts to create. To read more about the final paint choice, read “We. Painted. The. House.” So let’s take ONE more look at the “before” and I will give you some sneak peeks at it today! Well, last night. At Twilight to be exact 😉
I know some of you loved the green but even if we loved it, which we most definitely did not, it was so faded and peeling and BLAH that it needed a fresh coat regardless. I mean I wasn’t THAT mad about it ;-). There are some projects that we slay. And there are others that seem to drag and drag and drag. Well restoring the exterior has been the project that never ever ends. Then add on porch railing, back porch additions, a covered grill area and revamping the back porch and yea well, it literally may never end. So that my friends is why I haven’t done a full reveal quite yet. But I will share some extremely huge sneak peeks at where everything is today. AND I will share the exterior color since everyone keeps asking. Without further ado, take a little tour around OHW at dusk!

P.S. The exterior doors and garage doors were installed by the previous owner so I am not sure where they are from. I think they may have even been custom made. Sorry!
