Four Sides + The Bean Team =

One good-lookin' house!  Yes, we are FINALLY done!  It took us roughly a month and half of working weekends and dodging rain storms to paint the entire exterior of our house!  What did we learn from this experience?  Well, we learned that it's really not as daunting as a task as it seems to paint the exterior of a home.  Anthony learned that being afraid of heights is for sissies and I learned that I'm actually ambidextrous when it comes to painting!  We developed quite a simple "DIO" (Doing-It-Ourselves) way of painting so if you're interested in painting your house, send me a line and I'll share all! 
Last but not least, here's some good 'ole befores and afters to document one of our biggest projects yet!  Enjoy!

Next project?  Some much needed landscaping is in order and since Anthony used to be a landscape designer, it should be a fun time.  :)  Come back and see our house become surrounded by lushness!
