We were able to enjoy the new color for the last few months we lived there. I’m excited, though quite delayed with all the overwhelming events of the last while, to share with you the before and afters of our painted house!
This is a scanned image of the flier we had when we first found our house. Though the yard is gorgeous, when you would drive up the road, the house would be lost in the foliage. We have trees surrounding us and the color did not stand out.
These images are the only ones I could find after I painted all the trims an off white, the door red, and the shutters a deep brown. I did this shortly after moving in, but many years of photos were lost when our computer crashed last November, so you get winter images. Largest snowfall in recent Eugene history. 8 inches!
When they first painted the house, it was hard to tell that it was a different color. The color I chose is a soft brown instead of the gray/green. It wasn’t until the door and trim work was done that you could really see a difference.
We worked with Joshua at Precision Painting here in the Springfield area. He and his crew were FANTASTIC to work with. Very prompt and responsive and extremely well priced. I would recommend them to ANYONE.
There were a lot of decisions to make along the way. We chose to have the doors painted the same as the trim. Since there were 4 back doors, however, Joshua and I thought it would be good to camouflage one of them. The middle one here ended up the same color as the rest of the house.
Some people don’t like that the door is orange. It is a bright, yet soft color that brings out some colors in the brick. Though we are getting our house ready to sell, I waited so long to paint that I decided to paint it what I’ve wanted all these years. A new owner can paint a door again if they don’t like it, right? I know, can be a debatable question. However, I love it!
We finally hired a company to come do our yard. The results have been so worth the money!
