There’s nothing quite like standing back and appreciating a great paint job, especially the exterior of a home. Here’s some stunning images of exterior paint projects that we love to just stand back and look at.

It had been about two years since we last gave our front deck some love. The timber was losing colour and was starting to crack under the heat of the summer sun.
