Changing the view.

One of the things that can make a huge impact on a new home is changing up the look of the exterior.

The first step will be to paint the trim a nice dark gray (with just a hint of blue). Then I can add silver colored hardware to the flush mount front door we'll put in. Last will come the fun stuff, like these house numbers and doorbell.
