Enticing California Exterior

O ur house was built nine years ago. Seen below are the original colors the builder used to paint our home.

As you can see the paint has reeealy faded due to the elements, dreary isn’t it?

This paint is my new best friend!

Who is the genius at BEHR that eliminated an extra step??? . . Makes me smile . . . . Since my husband’s patience is just a “skosh” short, and I will see the results sooner!! YEAH :-)

“Paint & Primer In One”



( French Roast) I love this shade!



Browns have a powerful connection with our spiritual and introspective side, and is easily paired with many other colors.

The refreshed garage and shutters only took one gallon of paint $35.00 . . . . and no primer :-)

I hope this color can help you create the stunning color schemes you’ve always wanted.

Yesterday while walking my dog, I noticed this rain gutter should have been painted the same color as the rain gutter below the eaves. hmph !!

What an eyesore :-(
