|James Burns Painting|
Jim started by power washing, to get all the grime off. Then he prepped and caulked all the new windows and trim. Just the primer made a huge difference in the appearance of the house!
While Jim was painting up high, Richard was working on the front porch. The ugly old storm door is gone and we've painted the original door a glossy black. With it's beveled glass, crystal doorknob and dentil molding, it's a real beauty and shouldn't be hidden behind scalloped aluminum!
And I finally got to hang the Pottery Barn mailbox that I bought months ago! I just love how it looks, a nice change from the old stagecoach one from the Bonanza era (I know some of you aren't old enough to know what that is!).
