Our Home Exterior Makeover- The Reveal!

Today is the day! And can I just start off by saying THANK YOU!? Thank you so much to all of you who have been following along on this exterior makeover and who have been just as excited as we have been during it all. It is so, so appreciated!

Our home, while absolutely lovely, has never been our favorite when it comes to the colors of the exterior. So, we followed our hearts and decided to paint it. And let me tell you, it was quite the process for this indecisive girl! From choosing the colors (see my post on that HERE) to hiring the right company (see my post on that HERE) to the final product, it has been one nerve-wracking and exciting journey!

And I just can’t stand it any longer and am so excited to show you all! So, without further ado, here we go!

One of my absolute favorite elements of this transformation is our new house numbers! I am actually more than a little obsessed with them and have been so excited to share them with you!  I got them from a great little shop on Etsy called Go Home Numbers and I was more than thrilled when I realized the look I was going for was actually affordable! These are made from a high-density plastic to resemble metal, but these will never rust, fade, warp, or rot!  You know what, I think these deserve their own post because they are THAT cool. So, stay tuned! I have more to say on these beauties!

I went into detail about what the painting process was like in THIS post, but I just can’t get over how detailed it all was. We had no idea so much prep work went into painting the exterior of a home and we couldn’t be happier with the job our company, Fox Painting, has done. They were prompt, thorough, detailed and really listened to my thoughts, ideas, and concerns. These things really mean a lot to me!

Our home now feels clean, bright, and simplified. With the help of a few amazing companies and some hard work, we were able to transform our home’s exterior to match our style. And we absolutely love it!
