Before and After: Peeling Paint Replaced With a Sunny Hue

Su Casa member and impressive home renovator Ahles and her husband wanted to repaint their home, but the painter's estimate came in at $13,000. She writes, "This was close to our budget for the entire house, so like much of the rest of it, we did it ourselves."

Ahles writes, "The total cost was $1300 in primer, good paint, sanders, and supplies. Shortly after we started sanding the first part of the house (we did a lead test first), both my parents ended up in the hospital, so we didn't touch the house again until August. With the help of three dear friends, the rest of this was done in the past month. It's far from finished yet, but an improvement!"

This is such an incredibly big project, and the results look great! I love the sunny new yellow shade of the house.
