Dear PoPville,

Just this week… on the 2200 block of Champlain Street NW in Adams Morgan… Us five neighbors got together and did a color coordinated collective effort of painting our otherwise simple rowhouses. Beforehand 1/2 the rowhouses were bare and the other half painted boring colors. And they were overpowered by two big bookend condo buildings.

It took a few iterations of color choices and some of the nearby neighbors helped with choices. Heed our advice, color chips look different than entire painted houses. Buy a 6oz sample and try a block of color before you commit to the gallons. We also found a few blocks where we liked the series of colors and called the owners for their color names. Everyone was m

Ultimately we are all now very proud of what was otherwise a boring and simple block of rowhouses turning into a collective effort to get some real curb appeal

Each house took 3 gallons of Behr Premium Plus Ultra Exterior Satin and we shared 3 gallons of Exterior White Satin for the trim.
