We also repainted the fence in Resene Grey Friars and added our BBQ, lounger and our Panton outdoor set to set the scene for entertaining! This was always our favourite part of the house and no doubt the new owners will grow to love it as much as we did.
The whole exterior of the house received a new paint job and this was a real family effort. Taff and Dad were on the spray gun, while Luz and Brian had the unenviable job of painting the trellis. I don't think I realised how long painting trellis would take, literally hours and I would go as far as saying days, by the time we got all the bits and pieces done! We painted the roof, fences, front deck and exterior trims in Grey Friars and the weatherboards in Resene Half Merino.
The spray gun was absolutely amazing and made the job very fast. The longest part was the preparation. As you can see, everything needed covering, even the plants (my Dad is a perfectionist when it comes to painting)!
Unfortunately we didn't get any photos of the full finished exterior but it looked a hundred times better than the cream and dark green it started off as. We also repainted the front patio area and stairs which were unsightly terracota tiles and added a couple of potted plants and a second hand rattan sofa with cushions.
As you can see from the photo above, it was far from attractive and looked a whole heap better once it was done!
