As you all know, I want to paint my brick house. But it is a scary project to take on, once that paint is on, there's no turning back! So, although I imagined what it would look like, I really knew I would not know for sure, until the paint was on the house.
Imagine my SURPRISE, when I opened up an email yesterday from one of my lovely readers, Ali Mae! She virtually painted my house and sent me the pictures! I actually squealed in delight when I opened up her email and I was clapping my hands...and looking like I had just lost it ;) My husband was like, "What???" And then when I showed him, he was pretty happy as well (see, HE is the one PAINTING and he was still kind of hesitant about it)...until he saw Ali Mae's beautiful pictures, here take a look:
Spanish Brick Home Before:
Here, she virtually painted the house and shutters, in beige and tan, love it:
In this photo, she has added a trellis, for added interest and to 'balance out' the house, I love this, too:
Here, Ali Mae has added flower boxes to the upper windows, so pretty! Notice, too how she painted the porch a soft yellow, to make the arches stand out more - so smart!
And look, here she has even added CURTAINS to the arches on my front porch, like I had been talking about in my last post:
I think it looks like a beautiful villa, I am now even more excited to get going on this project. Thanks so much, Ali Mae, you are the best!!!
Edited to add: Ali Mae has started a new blog for her virtual makeover designs. If you would like to hire Ali Mae for a virtual home makeover, visit her new blog Alterior Designs. Congratulations, Ali Mae!!!
