    Wow! Huge difference… looks great! Love the blue color. Classy and different at the same time.

    But… where is your icicle Christmas lights?? EVERYONE in the Midwest must have icicle Christmas lights… LOL!

    I wish I was so brave! I’m keeping ours gray for now, but changing the front door and some windows out. Our bungalow is bigger and has a much more odd front (take a look at the website I listed), but I’ve driven through many DM neighborhoods that have rows and rows of those cute little houses! I like them too 🙂 Our street, too, has a number of houses that are very alike in layout and design!

    Good luck with any other remodel projects, now that the warm weather is nipping at our heels! Any ideas for our front landscaping from a fellow bungalow-restorer is welcome 😉

    I would never think of using that color, but it looks great, so cheerful! It really makes the white trim pop out. Good luck on all your projects, you have done some amazing work already.
