    A new coat of paint and a fresh start

    Day 236

    Feeling Fresh

    Even a new coat of paint can bring a lot of joy. It can make a room feel totally different. Today, we’re bringing a little of that joy to the inside and outside of Mama Noume’s home.

    There is nothing wrong with a brown house – but we wanted Mama Noume’s house to feel totally new.

    Having a refreshed space can lift your spirits, and the young mothers she takes in could use that lift.

    We repainted the outside of the house and painted the entire interior. It wasn’t too flashy that it stuck out, but it just felt more buttoned up and clean.

    The interior walls used to be cracked and falling apart. Now they’re flawless and beautiful, just as they deserve!

    Tomorrow is our last day of the renovation. Stop by to see the finishing touches!
