I'm too old for an all-nighter but the house looks great!

I didn't mean to stay up until 3:30 am. In fact, I was quite surprised to see the time when I finally looked at the clock. The result, though, is a nearly finished exterior. I want to add a porch swing to the side porch and some more plants in pots. The original builder used such a bold color on the house. I think the accent colors really enhance the main color.
Here's a closer view of the front porch. Isn't the stained glass fabulous?
The little bench and the planters came with the house. The bench was painted the same color as the house. I painted the ends to look like wrought iron and added a crackled layer of vintage white to the bench.
