I've shown you the new roof which I love by the way. Now it's time for the house painting itself. Today I share with you the porch ceiling that I've wanted for a few years.
Both Earls hard at work! Painter Earl Cunningham standing on ladder and Other Earl priming spindles on porch railing.
Close up of ceiling dirty before washing or painting.
Porch ceiling before painting. It is dirty and dingy. The house itself is especially where the shutters were. It is a wonderful time for a face lift even though a hurricane gave us the reason. We are glad to have it done.
Beginning to remove shutters so the ceiling can be painted and the house itself washed. This is getting real! I'm excited!
Looks pretty dark here, but the color changes with the lighting.
I've looked at it all times of the day and it is a virtual chameleon.
I love it!
The white of the porch and home aren't painted yet in these pictures.
And yet it still shows a crisp, clean look
The ceiling has a little more finishing as well
Isn't it pretty?
Last shot of ceiling
More painting of porch railings and house front
The floor has to be stained as well
I will be painting these Cracker Barrel Rockers
They really need it!
It was hard to do picking the right color.
I finally narrowed it down to two and let Chuck pick the one he liked best.
I thought it was a little too blue and darker than I would like.
I also wanted some aqua into the mix.
The sky overhead changes moment to moment here so it really doesn't matter.
I have grown to really like it!
Time was getting away we had to choose.
My girls will be happy with this little bit of color I've added!
