As we get closer and closer to the end of our big Rowhouse 25 project, we are finally starting to see the light. What started off as a simple flip, turned into thousands of dollars more invested into essentially a new build. When we decided to start this project, we knew there was going to be a lot of work. But, boy oh boy, we really didn’t know what to expect. This building is from 1890, so it needed a TON of work. Not only on things like flooring, stucco, drywall, bathroom renovation, etc… it literally needed to have its bones completely redone. From the electric to the plumbing, this structure is finally going to get the attention and TLC it deserve.
One of the biggest things we really wanted to tackle in our (never ending) checklist, was the exterior paint colors. The original coloring of the building was the very blue, grey tone. Turns out, it wasn’t even paint! From the looks of it, it was the coloring of the stucco that was used and never painted or covered up. They even used a blue tone paint for all of the original trim. We decided, to keep things in line with our overall style & aesthetic for the property, to stick with a simple, minimalist color scheme for the outdoor; black & white. We used BEHR PREMIUM® Elastomeric Masonry, Stucco & Brick Paint. The main color we used for the exterior was White Pepper, and Black Pepper for the trim. It’s hard to be too excited about the final look, since the landscaping hasn’t even begun. But, this gives us a really great feeling of the process we’ve made and we are so excited to share more on each room and the designs we’ve been going with.
