Angie Birds

Angie Birds
When Better After reader Angie and her husband bought this house, they knew something would eventually need to be done about its dreary beigeness, toothpick-like porch poles, and renegade flock of birds on the lawn. (They could also be leaves, but who can tell?)
So they added some stacked stone, new siding, and beefed up the poles so they no longer look like they would surely collapse in a mild breeze.  They love the look, and so do the neighbors, who’ve complemented them many times and, and also thanked them for ridding the neighborhood of its infestation of birds. (I might be making that part up.)  Looks great Angie!

    The before is way better I don’t think that much on your blog. But even with the toothpicky porch poles. Maybe it’s the blu they chose.

    Gotta say, I love the new look! The blue/white scheme is lovely, fresher than that drab beige, but a bit “aged” in a dignified way. Lots of character added with the stone work and sturdy porch beams. And no more pesky birds out front! 🙂

    Nice work, folks!

    I absolutely love the after, my house is very similar in style to this, and I love the contrast of the stone and the color. The beige on beige on beige is so done…so over.
    Love, love, love the stone. I have brick and siding like this, I can’t wait to do my house in this style, but probably with grey;)
