Painting the House

We’re painting our house. We still have to decide on colors. The previous owner (who’d lived here for 63 years) decided to paint the ENTIRE house Olive Green before she put it on the market 8 years ago. The entire exterior was green – bricks, trim, EVERYTHING. Well – everything but the black shutters. All it needed was some tan paint to make it camoflauge.

We feel this was the main factor in our acquiring the house for a reasonable amount of money (it had been on the market for MONTHS – it is splendid inside, but just looked so darned ugly!) We painted the shutters blue a few years ago, but that’s the only new color we’ve introduced.

After redoing the windows 4 years ago and the roof 2 years ago, it’s time for our bi-annual home improvement. This time – paint the house.

Here are a few color mixes I put together (isn’t photoshop wonderful?) We’re leaning toward the yellow on top, green on the bottom. It’s a nice combination with the (to be painted) white trim and blue shutters, and mixes well with the neighborhood.
