Yup, we did it. If you read our post yesterday, then you probably know we had our vinyl siding painted yesterday. And my oh my, we absolutely love it! Rather than bore you with a ton of text, we’re going to jump right in with photos of the house, along with a GoPro video we took while it was being painted.
We’ll be honest that we didn’t absolutely love the color when we first saw it on the house. When the paint was still wet, the tone leaned more towards gray than dark blue, but as it dried, it darkened. Once the paint fully dried, it was the exact color we were hoping for.
And yes, that’s a hot tub in the photo above. It’s a 50/50 shot if it works or not, but more about that story soon.
As you can see in the photo above, the exterior isn’t done quite yet. The painter and his staff are coming back in a few days to paint the back garage door, around the windows, and the doors. The brown trim underneath the roof line will also be painted white, and the original gingerbread trim will get a fresh coat of white paint as well.
And if you’re nerding out over this like we are, here is a time-lapse video we took of the front of the house while it was being painted.
We hope you love our new paint color as much as we do, and we can’t wait to post before and after pictures once the rest of the exterior work is completed!
