I think that we have definitely decided to paint our brick exterior probably. :)
(Our home before we moved in.)
The boys and I jumped in the car a couple of days ago and drove through an area in Lexington that is full of older brick homes.
Many of those homes have painted exterior brick. I was hoping to find a color that I loved. (And I think I did.)
I took my camera and snapped pictures through the windows! Sorta felt like I was doing something illegal.
Surprisingly, the boys loved it! They kept yelling, “Ooh there’s one, Mom!” “Over there, Mom!”
They actually want to do it again sometime.
As a child, I remember riding around with Mom looking at houses. Especially when she was trying to get ideas for landscaping around her house. She even took pictures. :)
If you are stuck in a rut and need inspiration, just go visit your favorite nearby neighborhood and soak up all the great inspiration.
Here are even more pictures I took of painted brick homes…
Look at this beautiful white washed brick home…
Of course, I love this color palette…(those red pillows!)
I tried to get a picture of UK Basketball Coach, John Calipari’s home, but I couldn’t slow down to take the picture.
So I grabbed some pictures off the internet!
Here is his beautiful painted brick home…
So what do you think?
Tell me which picture was your favorite, or what paint color you liked best?
(Then I will tell you which color I think I have decided on!)
