I could not be more happy with my black shutters. Since the day we looked at our house I didn't like the royal purple shutters. At first I thought they were dark blue and on cloudy days that's sort of what they looked like, other days they looked Royal purple. I knew we would get to it and we finally did. When people would describe my house as they pulled up they would say "are the shutter purple?" That's when I knew they had to go!!! I thought I was going to get a handy man for the top windows and even the ones on the side of the house but after I started I was bound and determined to do it all myself. It took a whole day and a half to complete. I'm not afraid of heights but Rob is, so I had no problem getting on the ladder for the bottom windows. The top windows I decided if I removed the screens I could reach out and paint them. It was a pretty funny sight!! My windows are the kind that you can open from the top or bottom, perfect. It was not easy but I finished on Monday and I am so happy. I have worked so hard on this house and I really do love it. I knew from day one this was our house. I can't wait to show some before and after pics side by side it will give you an idea of how much love this home needed.
I absolutely love the setting, it so unique. PA is a beautiful state it is just so old so some things are really run down. The mountains are gorgeous and all the ivy, trees, hills, moss..Really neat scenery.
Before:Long live the purple shutters
Goodbye purple for-ever!! We finally got new carpet!!! Our carpet was old, and I mean nasty old. It was 27 yrs old, can you imagine?
More to come....
