    This is some really good information about painting an exterior of a home. I want to sell my home soon and I have been thinking about increasing my home curb appeal before I put it on the market. It is good to know that it would be smart to have around 6 gallons of pain. Personally, I would rather have a professional paint my home for me.

    Thank you so much for talking about the steps your husband took to create a beautiful exterior of the home. I loved that he took off the bad trim before he started painting. I will need to look into finding someone who can paint my home, and do an amazing job. My home is so rundown looking right now, it will be nice when it looks fresh and clean again!

  7. Thanks for sharing your experience. I’m in a similar situation as you were. The color of my house isn’t great and now that I’m planning on selling my home, it’s got to change. I’m going to follow your example and start by calling a local painter.

  8. Your house looks so much better! We actually just painted our exterior and used the Behr Marquee. I was so surprised that we only needed one coat too! We chose a custom color that was similar to yours. It was a lot of work, but luckily our house is just one story.

    1. Thanks! The paint really is amazing!! And it’s so worth it to have a freshly painted house!

  9. Wow! Your house is truly looking beautiful with Behr’s Marquee line of paint. Thanks for sharing.

  10. This looks great! I so agree that some projects are to big that DIY is not the route to go. Hopefully you sell soon. Beautiful home.

    1. Thanks, Crystal! I’m really pleased with it!
