The Grand Reveal

Before.


After.


And from the back. Our mixed materials (brick on top, wood on the porch and cement on the whole basement floor) now blend a little better.


We are again very happy with the work of Miguel of Angel Painting. He and his team pressure washed, reglazed our windows and painted the whole exterior (brick, trim, metal poles under the carport, door, flashing around the chimney, etc.). Long gone are those green shutters with light yellow/beige trim accents.

Paint is Sherwin Williams (shade is called "Argos"). We used semi-gloss white "super paint" for the trim.

Miguel: (404) 438-3623. Really reasonable pricing and they're always done on budget and ahead of schedule. If you call him, tell him Katy Mallory referred you.

It's GORGEOUS!!! And what a cool back area. I never really thought about what the back looked like!

It looks great - and like a totally different house.

Wow! Night and day! Well done!

Thanks all!

CarrieAnn - you can't tell from the front but the house is built on a hill, so we have a (mostly unfinished) walk-out basement -- and a screened-in porch that overlooks the woods.

Love it! You picked some awesome colors!

Vica, we had good neighbors to help us weigh in on colors :)

The house looks great! I love the color Argos - actually used it in my kitchen :) When we painted our house, my husband and I couldn't agree on a color because I wanted gray and he wanted more of a beige. I started mixing colors, so got sort of a "greige" color that pleased us both - haha. Not sure how we'll match it if we want to use it again in the future though - we simply painted it onto a piece of wood and Sherwin Williams mixed it up, but not sure we still have the piece of wood!

Thanks, Traci! Greige - that is cracking me up!

House looks great in person and online. My parents just had their house painted or I would have them call your guys. The house looks fantastic and Paddy thinks so too

Julia said...

Oh-after hanging out on your porch I demanded that our next home have a screened in area for me to enjoy

Kb_Mal said...

Thanks, Julia. And screened in porches are quite imperative!
