Moldy Oldy

Meet my house. It was built between 1829 and 1836 and has been used as a parsonage, a meeting house, a livery, and an income property. Now it is a home.  The paint in this photo is probably 10 years old, and has faded and is starting to peel. When I was choosing the paint, the color looked really nice on the 1" x 1" chip in the paint store. Only when it was on the house did I realize it looked like pea soup. On the up side, ours is always the creepiest haunted house on Halloween.

Today the painters arrived early to scrape and prime her in preparation for new colors, and I hope to have a dramatic before and after post tomorrow.
