Can you believe we are already well into August? These 2020 months have been flying by. That's not to say things haven't been getting accomplished. If you are anything like me, you have been tackling and checking things off your to-do list. Many home projects have been completed (all DIY)and I'm feeling great about all the progress I made on my to-do list. 

During these uncertain times, I'm sure a lot of people are wary of having work done in their homes by professionals. I can assure you that if they are professionals example, Wow 1 Day Painting, they are taking all the necessary safety measures to keep you and themselves safe.  Now if you aren't ready to have any work completed in your home, take the work outside. 

One excellent thing to get accomplished now is to paint the exterior of your home. If you have been considering it, now is the perfect time to get it done. 

4 Reasons to paint your exterior:

1. It's looking drab and faded.

2. You do not like the paint color.

3. It boosts your curb appeal

4. You are selling your home.

Deciding to paint your exterior is the first step, next you have to choose a paint color. This is what everyone tends to struggle with. Finding a paint color can be stressful. Painting the exterior of your home is not inexpensive. So people find it hard to commit to a paint color. 

If you have no clue where to start, using lists like The Best Sherwin Williams Exterior Paint Colors and Amazing Benjamin Moore Exterior Paint Color Options, are great places to start to get some paint color ideas. Neutral Paint Colors are always a good exterior color option as well.

Even if you are using a color you found off a list one thing I always suggest is swatching and testing the paint colors beforehand. This will give you a real feel as to how they will look on your home.

There's no better time than the present. Don't let finding a paint color stop you from checking another to-do off your list.

We had our house built and picking exterior paint colors was the hardest of all decisions. We had HOA rules, so that made it even more difficult.
