"The worst household chore ever."
"Why house painters charge so much."
"The longest and worst project ever. "
"What I did all August and most of September."
So yeah. House painting. Not my favorite.
What I tell myself is that by painting our house ourselves we saved a lot of money. A lot of money. But painting a house on your own takes a lot of time.
A lot of time.
And we had help. So much help. I feel so grateful to Evan's parents, my parents, my friend Sam, and my brothers who gave up glorious summer weekends for prepping, sanding, scraping, sanding, priming and painting. (Yes, there's that many steps.)
But it needed to be done and I can not be more happy that our house is finally painted. And I love the end result. One more project checked off our enormous house to-do list.
p.s. we matched our old paint color to the new paint-- so I have no idea the color, but my front door is Behr exterior gloss paint in chili pepper. :)
