|This is on the side of the house where the wind, rain and snow blows.|
On the windows, I used a mildew resistant paint, above is just an outdoor paint.
So I started washing, chipping and painting. Man! is that hard work keeping your arms up over your head to do all that work.
This is how it looks now. Not bad! Now I need to do the same in a few other places around the house that I see are chipping.
When you own a house, there is so much upkeep. My Hubs and I are at the point where we want to downsize.
Next, I am painting all the trim around the doors and windows. It has really faded over the years as you can see in this picture.
The right side is the new paint and the left is about 5 years old.
I like the paint we used because it doesn't peel or mold. It does fade over time though. I don't think fading that can be helped with the hot sun.
So that is what I have been doing for the last week or so. I have 18 windows with shutters on them. Plus 3 doors, 2 garage doors and misc trim that I did.
I still haven't gotten to the inside of my dirty, disgusting 2 stall garage.
You can see I patched a few spots already
