Well, sort of. I have a super quick before & after shot to show you today...basically as proof that I'm still alive and DIYing!
We painted our house!
And I can happily report that thanks to this project, I have overcome my fear of ladders (sort of) and spiders (kind of)...but not bees. And there were plenty of all three.
We totally could not have accomplished this feat without Tony's mom and step-dad, who not only footed the bill for all of the paint (they love us!!), but also put in long hours helping to get the job done.
It feels so good to no longer be living in a salmon-pink house!
Tony was set on have a green house, so I let him choose the color. My first choices would have been dark gray or some shade of blue, but since I picked almost every interior color, I gave him free reign of the exterior. (Fair is fair, right?) We brought home three samples from Home Depot and painted swatches on the side of the house, and both decided that Behr's "Ivy Topiary" in satin was the winner. For the trim we used Behr's "Polar Bear" in semi-gloss which has just the teensiest hint of cream, so it's not blinding, in-your-face white. We also wanted it to match the garage door so we wouldn't have to repaint it.
We plan to paint the front doors a glossy black color, sort of like this:
I have so much more to share with you, but I'm out of time for today. I really hate the feeling of being so behind on my blogging, and especially my blog reading!
Seriously, 96 unread posts on Bloglovin?? Not okay.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who gets this behind in Blogland??
plan hope to write some more posts next week, but I'm a procrastinator by nature so I make no promises. Although I do have some pictures from an ocean camping trip with Tony & Chloe, some updates to Chloe's room, and an awesome dresser we found at a yard sale and have some fun plans for. Stay tuned!!
