This is my house the day we went for our inspection. I still can't believe I saw the potential, but hey, it was 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths! With 5 kids still at home, I felt certain I could transform this 80s ranch into a quaint little cottage....
In July, I began painting the outside of the house, removed the porch railings (that were falling down by themselves anyway), and added some porch furniture. Voila! (pics will enlarge if you click on them)
Not too bad, seeing as I had to work with an orange/peach roof and salmon-colored brick, eh? I'm still toying with the idea of adding white porch rails, but so many folks have said they like it open that I'm not sure I will now. What say you?
Be sure to visit the other 'before and afters' at the party!
