I can put this on my list of DIY projects that seem like a slight change, but really make a great difference.. Our front exterior had become chipped over time & from full sun, so it was in need of refreshing.
It looked like the prior owners had caulked OVER the top of old caulk… Definitely wasn’t pretty when I started scraping the old away.. This part wasn’t too difficult, just tedious to get all of the old caulk off, as well as scrape & sand the chipping paint. Once it was smoothed out, I re-caulked using this:
And my go-to brand of paint, only in exterior for this job;
Of course I couldn’t do the job w/out having a foreman supervise;
Initially I was only going to repaint the parts that were already white, but then decided to do the portion surrounding the side glass windows as well. I’m so glad I did! I feel like it brightened up the doorway that much more.
My husband always asks, “why do you like to paint things WHITE so much?”… My simple answer.. I love clean, crisp lines 🙂
A cheap weekend project that turned out great!
My next task…. Deciding what color to paint the storm door! Suggestions are welcome 🙂
