Back in September I posted about an affordable renovation we did on our hallway/guest bathroom.
Now I have my sights set on an exterior makeover.
While we know it will be a while (as we have some other, less-glamorous projects to work on — such as improving drainage in the yard), it's fun to think about how to change and improve the outside look of our home. Currently we have red brick, cream/yellow trim and hunter/kelly green shutters. This look has got to go!
Now. Also note how we have a mix of materials: some brick, some siding, etc. Around back (the exterior of the walk-out basement) is a stucco/cement type mixture. Of course the current landscaping (or lack thereof) also leaves something to be desired...
Better Homes and Gardens' Web Site has a neat tool called "Color-a-Home." While you can't upload a photo of your house, you can choose a house like yours and switch out the trim, door, brick/trim, roof and shutter colors.
Wow. Isn't that better?
