Buffalove paints so W.S. houses can pop

Bernice Radle, co-founder of Buffalove Development, above, stands in the stairway of the 351 Massachusetts Ave. house that she is currently working to rehab. Buffalove Development purchases houses on the West Side and brightens them up, inside and out. The organization just started a fundraising campaign online, Paint Out Loud!, where the goal is to raise $15,000 by the spring to paint houses whose owners cannot necessarily afford to do it themselves. “Even if we don't meet our goal, I think that we will take that paint and repaint porches, and try to repaint the front door of every house on the block as well, to make it pop and make it look a little more loved," Radle said.
