Starting the Big Paint Job

Over the past few months, I've spent most of my free time stripping, sanding and painting and I finally have something to show for it. We agonized over paint colors and ended up choosing a series of colors in Sherwin Williams' "Arts & Crafts" series.

A big part of the painting process is scraping old paint. We decided not to remove all of the paint but instead are only removing the loose paint, sanding to feather the edges, priming and painting.

We spent a lot of time determining the technique we would use to paint trim and sills. I'll devote and entirely new blog post to that in the coming weeks.

Here are some progress photos of the front porch so that you can get an idea of what the finished product will look like.

Oh! What a lot of work.

It looks splendid.

That's a beautiful paint pallet. I look forward to the after photos.
