When we bought our house back in July 2010 we knew the color would have to go. The mint green exterior meant that we got our house for a great deal because most people wouldn’t even consider buying a house the color of ours. We looked passed the color and recognized a house in great condition that would look really good if it were a different color.
We moved into this house, this very green house with stark black accents. I loved the house, the color, not so much.
Over the last 2 years we’ve made a lot of changes. First we replaced all the windows and the garage door. I was amazed that even just getting rid of the stark black color and the too green garage door made a huge difference. It was still mint green, and I still couldn’t wait until it was a different color, but it was at least some what better.
Late last year prep began for the final stage of the transformation. Painting bids were obtained and a company was chosen. The weather was too cold to have the work done right away so we waited until the spring, hopeful to be one of the first on the list. I was so excited when the crew arrived to power wash the house and get things ready for painting. And, then last week when the painting crew arrived I could hardly contain my excitement.
Yesterday the final touches were completed and now our house looks like this…
Operation Goodbye Mint Green was a huge, huge success. Our house looks AMAZING!!
I’m so happy with the way it turned out. I love driving down the street and seeing my “new” house. It truly looks amazing. Our neighbors keep stopping us to let us know how much they like it and to thank us for finally getting rid of the green! Turns out we weren’t the only ones anxious to see that color go 🙂
