Fixer-upper Fridays: New Paint for an Old House!

It has been a completely crazy couple of weeks – new goats, new baby chicks, put in a garden, painted the house and cared for my 2 year old who came down with a case of pneumonia. Hence, my lack of posting. So much to catch up on! First, we'll start with a Friday Fixer-upper…

My house is cute and yellow!! Our house is nearly 200 years old, and for as far back as I can see in the historical photos we have, it has been white for many years – maybe even since the first time some previous owners painted the original wood. Well, we decided to give this old place a facelift. I present the Before & After…

(We have a few repairs to make to the sun porch and then it will be painted.)

We chose a pale yellow color and white for the trim. We kept the door and shutters green, although the green has a bit more tint of yellow and less blue than before. To further improve curb appeal, we're planning to remove the old bushes and re-landscape the beds directly in front (I suppose that will be a project for this summer. :)) I can't wait to add a few white rocking chairs to the porch and plant some flowers!

Loving my old farmhouse,
