Here it is...BEFORE
We moved into our first house the last week of March 2009. I was 6 months pregnant and ready to prepare my nest. Thankfully, the interior of the house was move in ready (the previous owner was also an interior designer...we lucked out). This was a must considering my baby bump, and all we had to do was paint a couple of rooms and put new carpet in the nursery. BUT as you can see by the picture, the exterior needed a little TLC. We were going to wait a year or so before we made any improvements, but then Reg got the itch and it was all down hill from there. It all started with Reg trimming a few limbs. Before we knew it, we were cutting down 13 trees and landscaping the back yard. As many of you "houseaholics" (a fellow blogger turned me on to this term..haha) may know, once you do one thing to a house, it's a domino effect.Have you ever seen so many pine trees...they had to go!The mud pit after we cut down ALL the trees...domino effect = much needed landscaping.
Gotta love some new, green Zoysia! This is my husbands new love...minus me and Annie :).The brick on our house was not pretty...it was an ugly, orange color and I was dying to paint over it.
So we did and ta-da here it is!! Hope you like it! I went with Sherwin William Wool Skein for the main color, Panda White for the trim and Hardware for the shutters and doors.
I'm so glad all the workmen are finally out of our hair and we can now enjoy our new and improved home.
