When we bought the lake house, one of the appealing things about it was how much character it had. It had a really interesting shape, cool brick, and gorgeous wood on the interior. There weren’t many things that immediately needed to be changed, but one thing that did was the stark white paint on the cement exterior around the bottom of the house:
The white paint clashed with the house’s “blended into nature” appearance, and so I painted it a dark brown color that I think fits the house much better.
It was pretty easy to paint using a paint sprayer and a brush over the course of two days. I had never used a paint sprayer before, and after using it for this project it’s hard to imagine using anything else for large outdoor painting projects.
In addition to the house, I also painted the doors to the shed, which before had been a bright red color that didn’t really fit the rest of the shed and the house.
