Still Lovin' Our Neighbors!


Back in April, I posted a project that had absolutely nothing to do with our home improvement, but instead, focused on our neighbor’s house. :)  They were in serious need of an exterior paint job, and we {including my parents} were ready and willing to help out!  It took just one sunny Saturday, and the six of us managed to double-coat their house and give it a much-needed facelift!  The results were fantastic, but the transformation didn’t end that day.  I had mentioned that they were going to add an accent color {in the cranberry family} to their front door, and they were also getting some new, black shutters.  A few of you commented that you’d love to see their place with everything completed, and now that it’s complete {okay, okay…it was done probably a month and a half ago} I am happy to oblige!

Here it was after we painted back in April...


...and here it is today!  Quite the charmer, don’t you think? :)

  15. It looks so great!! We have a majorly 'in-need-of-a-paint-job' neighbor as well and would be more than happy to help them out, but not quite sure how to bring it up in fear we might insult them!! Mind if I ask how you went about talking to them?

    1. I think our situation is a little different than most. From the minute we moved in, we made friends with them...and have actually grown quite close over the months. We knew it was on their to-do list and just told them what day we were all going to get to work on it and just planned it that way. Sorry I'm not more of a help! :)
