After living in our home for almost 4 years, it’s become apparent that the exterior wall paint has GOT. TO. GO. It has started flaking, becoming chalky and peeling off in places. Plus it was white and I have been longing for a new colour to take our 1959 built house into the modern era.
So, we start the paint journey. There are colours of every shade of taupe, beige, stone, sand and slate. It’s hard to know where to start. One of the coolest tools I discovered in the last week or so has been the Dulux Visualiser App, which allows you to take a photo of your walls or room and then literally colour it the way you want. You get a very real sense of what your previously white walls would look like in Karoo Land or Nightingale Grey, as well as how hideous they would look in Beetroot.
Once the roof had seen the end of a high-pressure hose, the tiles appeared to be pale red. I kid you not. Anyway, our team slapped on a high absorbant coat of Anthracite Charcoal and our roof has had the best facelift it has seen in a long time. I am super gleeful right now.
