Our olde farmhouse is getting a facelift! Its been years since our house has been painted. The man we hired has been scraping and sanding and now is painting on a sealer/bonder so the new paint job will last for several years. We are trying to decide on a color, and oh what a hard decision it is! I think I am leaning towards all white. I'm sure that this house being 112 years old spent alot of its life all white! Can't wait for the June sale to show off our new paint job!
