Most Frightening Decision Ever!!!

I have to make one of the biggest decisions ever…I’m terrified!  If I choose wrong, there’s no turning back…

We’re painting the exterior of our house!!!

This is way more scary than just picking a color for a room…if you pick the wrong color, you can pick out a new one…I can’t pick 13 gallons worth of a new  color!!

And, it’s not so much the color, what do you paint trim and what do you keep house??  gutters??  fascia board??  We drove around this weekend looking at the different ways people paint their house…

Our home now in all its hideously, ugly, glory…

The screen door is like an iron cage…it will be replaced with an all glass screen…

033

 

043

It’s been this color since we moved in, I’ve disliked it since day one…

When I got home I took photos of our own house and used Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer to get…a visual…

Here’s what were considering…

House Front

Back House

and since I’ve got some “Lucky Green” leftover from my bench makeover, how ‘bout this for the front door??

I’m thinking…YES!!

ooh i like the new potential colors! what about painting the brick, too? there is not much of it, so it might make the house look bigger?
our home is pretty darn ugly color wise, too, but it goes with the roof color. so we won't be painting til it comes time to get a new roof. :(

I love it! And that green door will be amazballs! Will you paint the brick as well, or leave that as is?
