My house is turquoise. Now, I think turquoise is a pretty color, but not what I want for the outside of my house. The solution, of course, is to paint the exterior. However, I am afraid of heights and I don't like being in the sun, so I reluctantly decided to hire someone. I kept reminding myself that for some tasks, even the most hardcore DIYer is better off hiring a pro. For the last two days, I have waited nervously behind plastic-covered doors as two guys spray, roll, and brush away the turquoise. Though I'm glad it's them on the ladder, I really hate having so little control over the quality of the work being done.
This is what the house looked like when I bought it. The house is that little turquoise thing behind the HUGE tree.
Later, the tree broke under a heavy snowfall and was removed, revealing the other half of the house and matching turquoise chimney pipe.
This is the back of the house. Yep, that's a dog door cut into the wall by the previous homeowner.
I anxiously await the "after"...
