Paint Correction

I wrote an entire post this morning and it disappeared - POOF! - into thin air. What I was going to SAY was that the entire house will be painted one of the colors we choose. The ugly blue will go away forever. And ever. We hated that blue from the moment we lay eyes on it. Here, again, are the colors, up close and personal.


These are the greens. I like the greener one on the left. Hunny is coming around with it. The one on the right is more gray.



These are the neutrals. I like the one on the right. My friend Brandi was here yesterday and thought it might look like a giant peach if we painted the whole house that color. I think it looks stellar with the brick, and most of the front is brick. We'll see. I'm heading out in a bit to pick up more little pints o'paint. And buy birthday decoration. The Hunny turned 40 today.

Thank you all for your contest entries! Oatmeal Head has chosen his favorite cow name, but Little Guy is still in school (summer school). I'll let y'all know tomorrow!

Until I write again ...

I like the grayer green, but it might totally change against the brick.

That's why I love living in a white house. I never have to figure this out. Interior colors are hard enough, but exterior? Treacherous!

This is going to look great, regardless of which paint color you choose. I know it's been a lot of work and expense, but you'll be able to rest easy knowing that it's done.
