The big project results

Over Memorial Day I told you that besides the landscaping, We were working on a big project. It's finished and it's time to show the hard work.
Our house has vinyl siding and cedar shakes on it. We were both really tired of the dark stain on the cedar so we decided to paint them.

Here's a photo of work in progress so you can see how dark it was before:


Here's the finished product: Don't look too close at the siding- a bird blessed us and Mark doesn't want to power wash it yet until the paint sets for awhile!




I'm very happy with how it turned out- I think it took 20 years off the house. I said that to Mark and he told me- well since it's only 16 years old- we're in the hole! Between the painting and the landscaping we've done- it's a completely different look out front.
What do you think??

Wow, with all that landscaping that you've done, it really looks different! I love it. I'd say it took 15 years off the house! (there, now you're not in the hole!)

You are amazing! I can't believe everything you've painted in the last months and I still haven't done one project.

The house looks great and I'm sure you are sooooo glad it's done.
