Eat, Sleep and Paint
We have been remodeling…again. Well not “again”, just continuing from weeks ago, okay months ago..oh seriously years ago!! I have just came to the conclusion it will never stop. It’s a hobby that keeps on giving or taking! It’s also a “hobby” I love. AND I love our new 4 inch wide white baseboard trim and our”Craftsman Trim”. Our old trim was all thin, oak trim. The new wide white trim and white Craftsman over the doors, just makes things “pop”! It gives such clean lines through out the rooms and hallways. Sharing photos of two of our projects.
Below is photos showing what I shared in a previous of an unexpected update to the outside of our home. We had burgundy shutters with a burgundy front door and side door to the garage. Those colors had been there over 15 years, almost 20. NO more. So after a few samples of paint to get the paint color just right for the shutters, I found the perfect color, Behr Fauna brown (actually more of a taupe/clay color. And to make the doors POP I used Glidden Whale Gray (I had Home Depot color match to Behr paint).As you can see the Whale Gray had blue undertones (sea colors) that go wonderfully with the siding and new shutter color. And yes, painting shutters (8 of them) with louvers, is a bit time consuming, but exterior Behr paint is such wonderful paint, it is so smooth going on, levels wonderfully and dries quickly. It made painting the shutters with louvers absolutely doable.
