Living in a community we don’t just go down and pick out paint. If you are going to change what is currently on it a committee has to approve it. Never having lived in a community before this was all new to me and a little painful but the good side is I know my neighbor isn’t going to paint theirs purple with red trim. ☺
This is the first time I’ve ever hired painting done as we’ve always done it ourselves. Or to be more accurate Jack always did it and he HATED it. In fact it was a big reason why we built the brick house.
It’s hard to see the exact color but this one was a cream yellow. Years ago Jack wanted a yellow house so we painted ours. Not good as shortly afterward it got mildew on it and looked like it hadn’t been painted in years. We had to redo it and put some stuff in the paint to prevent mildew. Needless to say we didn’t paint it yellow the second time.
So with not wanting to keep the color on the house I went in search of another color, I love this combination, the neighbor has already voiced her opinion that she would have preferred a white trim but I like it. And, again it’s one more task off my to-do list which feels wonderful.
