Here's a quick snapshot of what our little exterior update looks like. You can hardly even tell that the house had shutters in the BEFORE pic. They were white. And the BEFORE pic also doedsn't really show how bad the columns were looking. I painted the columns about 3/4 of the way up, but I made Adam do the more dangerous job and do the top 1/4. We discussed it. He knows how to fall better than I do. I'd probably break my neck falling 6 feet. I've seen him fall off a roof before and he was fine. Thankfully, there was no falling in this project.
