What does an old house, an 80’s maroon style, and paint have in common?

Our house as we bought it. I was NOT diggin' the maroon shutters, especially since they clashed with our red shed/barn in the backyard. But putting up new siding and shutters was too expensive...

We painted all the shutters black, but I still felt that something was missing....do I see a red shed in the background? Hmmmmm....what about a red door to tie things in?

And so here is our current house: black shutters and a red door! With just the cost of paint and a bit of labor, our house was updated.

    ha, ha, a BIT of labour? Or should I ask Josh about taking down and putting back up the shutters? lol I should never have told him we left ours on when we painted them! It looks fabulous, though!
