Choices to make

The last time we painted our house I wanted to paint it yellow. But, I never found the right shade. I did not want our house to resemble a school bus. So, we just had it painted gray for the second time! This time, I am determined to find the right shade. I bought different sample size colors. One was too dark, one to light and one did have a strong resemblance to the above mentioned bus. I have used different shades of yellow/golds inside our house over the years. So, I went in the basement and found a half empty can of paint. I think I had used it in the livingroom at one time. It was the perfect shade. I should of thought of that before I bought the samples! I am 99% sure I have made the right choice. I just called the painter and the order is probably being place now. No turning back now!

Now, I have to decide on the shutter color. I thought brown might be nice, however after a little more thought I am leaning towards either blue or red. This is a big step for me! The house has been gray since 1992! But it is time for a change! A big change at that.

Thanks for visiting!

I am the worst at picking paint colors! I like the yellow and I like the red shutter idea!

Have a great day!

I pick yellow and red. My living room walls are yellow and the furniture is red and green. It's a warm happy room. Your house will be too. Nice to hear from you again. I'd been missing you.
