Our Country Bungalow ~ Before and After

I’ll start with some good old photos of our home past seasons…

Such a sweet memory of Addy bringing me a bouquet of flowers on my birthday. Old door color, new door color.

Before and after…


We put our summer shade cloth up on Thursday.

Front and Back in the new colors.

Dear also removed the outdoor light fixtures and painted them white. They were a gold finish that was not in great shape.

There is still a little touch-up on the white trim that needs to be done. Dear also had to take out the decking closest to the house to put in flashing so the rain water wouldn’t soak the siding and destroy it. That set him back a few days.

We are happy with the new look. The paint is Teton Blue by Behr.

The new view for all the south bound traffic that drives by with the clearest view of our home.

It took almost 6 gallons of paint. We have enough paint left over to redo the south side of the house in a few years. That’s the side that gets the most sun and other weather beating.

We have moved into the last week of July. Time is ticking away. Predictions this week are for temps to get upwards to 100 degrees and above. We’ll be working very early in the morning and staying inside in the heat of the day.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a good week.

  1. Looks great and represents a lot of hard work! Very wise to have extra paint for the future.

    Sweet little girl Addy bringing flowers. Yes, time is zipping by…


  2. Fantastic befores and afters, Ellen. I don’t think I’d ever seen the back of the house from that viewpoint. Really? The whole exterior was painted using only 6 gallons? Wow.

  3. That was a fun tour of before and after! You did a beautiful job (meaning the two of you, of course!) and have really made your sweet home your own and one to be proud of! Hot here in Eugene too — going to get to mid-90s this week, which is just *wrong* for our side of Oregon. Not going outside unless I can get myself up and around very early in the morning.

  4. I love it! It makes your home look so much brighter and the white trim is so fresh and modern. I also love your large daisies–how wonderful to have so many flowers to enjoy! I read about the heat wave coming there–ugh! That is not my kind of weather although it has been unusually hot here, too, the past few summers.

  5. I liked the red door but love the blue. I also love the new color. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of paint can do. The whole feeling of your home feels so fresh and uplifting. The clumps of daisies are stunning against the blue of the house. I hope you are able to stay cool and relaxed as this heat continues to build over the next few days.

  6. That’s quite the transformation! I really like that shade of blue. High five to your husband for all of the work he put in and to you for all those cold drinks you carried to him to keep him hydrated.

  7. Terrific transformation!!!!!! I LOVE the new door color! It’s really eye-catching! “Teton Blue” paint, huh? Like the color of the sky above the Grand Tetons, maybe? Beautiful!
