A splash of color

My husband is taking a few days off from work over the holidays and we are putting some of our re-fi money to use with a much needed task-painting the house. You know you need to paint when touching the house leaves you covered in chalky white. Also, paint was starting to peel in some places. The house is over 100 years old and the stucco is so thick that the cable and phone companies can't drill through it, so I'm not worried that the paint failure is eminently going to cause us ruin, but the house was looking a few days from condemnation, so it was time for a face lift.

We knew our house had a colorful past, but who knew it was THIS colorful?

Hmmm, which do you like better, the pink or the turquoise? There's a gold under it all, but I didn't get a picture.

Here's what we settled on for the NEW color. It's a grayish green.
Pin It!
