Our homeowners association makes a drive by every few years. And then notifies the homeowners of any updates that need to be made to the outside of the home. We recieved a letter stating our shutters need to be re-painted. Chris and I disagree because we think the shutters are fine, but the association will be back in 45 days to check on it. Since we have to re-paint we decided to go for a different color. And give the outside of the home a facelift and different look. Here is what our home looked like before ( I love the red and will miss it, but was time for a change) We also decided to also re-vamp the mailbox.
Here is the after. Amazing what paint can do!
