I feel like I won.....not money but the paint lottery.
After all of the agonizing over choosing a color for the body of my house....I am in love with BM China White. So in love...like marry and have children....commit for a lifetime in love.
Do not hesitate to ever use this perfectly creamy.... chalky.....white.
I could show you pictures of homes painted this color but it just does not look the same. Because I researched it and even painted a swatch.....but I didn't know how truly perfect this white is.
So...now where are we with the shutter color.
I know you are tired of all this paint talk but.....not as stinking over it as I am......I have had all of my paint decks [and cans of paint samples] on the kitchen countertop for about 3 weeks now.
My inspiration picture...which I a still love so much that I have an 8 x 10 glossy framed by my bedside.
But let's face it.
I don't have the metal roof or that freaking fabulous front porch.
Here is the sample of Manchester Tan. Not really feeling it. From the street it just not show up at all....
So then I put on my designer hat and started thinking. I have a white fence with a gate that shows to the left of my house...
And from far away it looks good but.... up close it is dirty and chippy. Has to be painted.
SO.....here is my thought. Since I have a dark gray roof use a medium dark gray on the shutters and then I will paint the gate and fence that same color. Won't show dirt and green plants will look so good against it.
I know what you are thinking. Sherry.....show us your house painted white so we can help you. Well I would but I am sitting in a Comfort Inn....only the best accommodations for me..... [in Grove City, Pittsburg to attend a family wedding] as I write this and forgot to take a picture.
In other news around mi casa...I am doing some summer accessorizing.
Can you see I just ripped this white plate off the wall to use [it still has the plate hanger on it]. Details.... #alwaysinahurry
Here is an update on the umbrella situation. I caved and went back to Ballard for the frame. What was I gonna do.....I mean with the Memorial Day discount....I could see no alternative.
Canopy + Frame......happiness.
Now that it is getting really hot I have to get my backyard area whipped into shape.....good times.
