Painted Brick Houses | Before and After

I am so bad about sharing projects. One huge project has been checked off the list. We finally painted our house and got a new roof. 

Before
After

We are still in the process of doing some landscaping, replacing the railing and getting some larger shutters. I actually ended up asking neighbors for paint colors. They had paired their brick with a light shutter which was my initial plan. After we decided on the same color as someone close to us I figured I would keep it different with a classic black shutter.  The great thing about picking a neutral white/off white is you can change the colors of your shutters to give you an update whenever you are getting tired of your paint combos. Paint is cheaper than a new house.
