It is amazing what a new roof, removing overgrown shrubs, and a thorough power washing can do. The exterior of our new little cottage is now all clean and ready for paint. Yay!
Here are my color choices: the trim will remain white; the red siding will be painted a neutral beige to blend with the stone; the black shutters will be gray; the white gutters will be replaced with bronze aluminum ones; and the front door will be a lovely shade of aqua called "Antique Glass."
Inside, the foyer, living room and three bedrooms have freshly painted walls and gleaming refinished floors. Have a look . . .
After a month, we can finally unpack and get comfortable. (And I can begin to decorate. For me, there is nothing more fun than that!) However, while we enjoy these nice, clean rooms, our kitchen, family room and studio are undergoing their major renovation. What a mess!
It's been crazy here this week, and certainly very loud. But I can deal with it because once it's done, I know it will be fabulous. I'll share more of the demo with you soon. In the meantime . . . Happy Halloween!
