Our Yellow Brick House

We've lived in our house for 8 months now and as I've mentioned, it is old, like reaaaaaally old.  It has great bones and a great layout though, which are the major reasons we bought it.  That being said, there is a ton of work we need to do.  We are planning on remodeling the entire inside next Spring but our first big project is actually getting done next month and I am beyond excited!!

Our house is all brick, and old, did I mention that yet?? Here's a pic of the outside as it is now.  I'm sure 50 years ago this brick was beautiful and probably not even this yellow, but time has not done this baby good and she needs a facelift.  We knew the first thing we wanted to do was paint the brick, I figured let's get the outside looking nice for now until we can focus on remodeling the inside.

We have always thought of painting it white and adding black shutters so I've been scouring Pinterest and the www to find some good images of white houses.  Here are a few that caught my interest and have me SO excited for this project!




I can't wait to turn our yellow brick house to our white brick house! Now I just need to think of a good color choice for our front door!
