We had no sooner washed our paintbrushes and the weather turned on us. I didn’t even get the rest of the backyard raked before it was buried in snow.
But our old girl is all painted, and looking mighty pretty dressed in a coat of white.
Inside and out, Lance and I have discussed how we feel our house (and maybe Victorians in general) seem to glow in Wintertime.
The very last thing we painted were the steel storms around the dormer windows. Some day, we’d love to fully restore the windows and have storms made, but for now we decided to recreate the look by painting the storms dark. I think it makes a HUGE difference for the good. And now you can also see our updated color scheme witht the “Oyster Bay” on teh shakes intstead of the lighter “Silvermist.”
And now with the all of the outside work done (for now), we can have fun playing in the snow!
All the way until after dark and mom calls us in for supper.
I’ll leave with a picture of our house taken in the 1960’s after a spring storm. Again, confirming that this house shines in a storm.
