This weekend was really busy and I got a lot done.
Took the grandkids to the park and watched Peppa Pig together,
Visited Dad in the hospital, went to the flea market,
And oh yeah … painted most of the front porch. Are you ready to see the new exterior paint colors?
(I should note here that it was a 3-day weekend.)
But I saw a photo that inspired me to be brave …
This one … from the Snippets from Springdale blog.
She took this photo while touring Galveston and the contrast really resonated with me.
I knew the siding of our exterior paint colors would remain yellow.
But kept going back and forth on the trim colors …
and opted to use aqua for the front and back doors.
I still need to paint the porch ceiling and floor, along with the rest of the house.
It takes me forever to pick exterior paint colors (just ask hubby).
Initially I had paler versions chosen, but in the end, let my hair down and went bold!
I have to admit, I was nervous about posting these photos.
The siding is Butter Up and the white trim is Snowbound.
And my beautiful violet-tinted blue is called Down Pour.
I also took a little inspiration for my exterior paint colors from my new porch cushions.
Or are you lovin’ it as much as I do? I’m going to make one slight change to the front door though.
In case you’re new to my blog, here’s what my front porch used to look like …
Ugh! That front door sure needed painting, didn’t it?
I’ll show more of our exterior paint colors as we get the rest of the house painted.
