BEFORE AND AFTER: White Painted Brick and My Favorite Exterior Colors

We moved back in July and since that time we have not made a lot of changes to our new house. I stalked this house for a year and half before we ended up going under contract. I knew that the first thing I wanted to do was paint it white. 

In my defense, I do love brick. Just very specific types of brick. Usually located in historic neighborhoods I cannot afford. This is the second house we painted and I do not regret it for a second. 

Before:



After:



We painted our brick and siding Benjamin Moore 'White Dove'.

    1. I got so frustrated because Lowes and Home Depot had no clue what I was talking about when I was looking for wood and glass storm doors. We had so special order ours through a building supply company because they are double and an odd size. If you have a standard door, you can just go to your local lumber supply store. If you are local, Capitol City Lumber has tons.

  5. LOVE! I never understand why people install white windows when there is absolutely ZERO white anywhere else on the house!! Since replacing our windows with the bronze exterior, it's all I can see on other houses. Yours looks so good!
