Pantry cabinet and completed butler pantry

I finally finished the final touches in my butler pantry and revamped a cabinet for my pantry.  Here is the cabinet before I painted it.
 Here is the cabinet in the pantry after I finished it. It is hard to get a good picture as the butler pantry is right across from the pantry.  Not much room to get a good picture.
Here is the butler pantry finally finished.  I had to stand inside the pantry as far back as possible to get this photo and I still couldn't get the whole cabinet in the picture.
I took a close up picture of the decor.
 Today I decided to replace the rooster on top of the hutch with a different one.  The old one was ceramic and the new is metal.
I just had to include this cute picture of our new puppy Kolby.  He is 6 months old now.  He is quite the handful.  I got this new throw and he thinks that it is his.

New color for house

We had a bad hail storm in August and needed to get a new roof and paint.  We decided to change the color from a light grey green to a darker green.  It is funny how those small paint chips look soooo much different when the whole house is painted.  They even came out and painted a sample which seem to look ok at the time.  Right now I am not so sure about the color.  They haven't finished it yet but the the front is close to being done. I think right now it is just a color shock for me since I have lived with the lighter color (which I never liked when we moved here) for over a year now. I sure that I will get used to it over time.

Here is the before picture of the old color.

Now here is what it is looking like now. 

This isn't exactly what it looks like in person.  It's funny how the color changes when you take a picture verses in person.  It is more a medium sage color.  Don't you just love the contractor sign in the front.

The shutters above the garage door and all of the doors are going to be a brownish red color.  Still not sure about this color.  But it was approved by the HOA.  It is better than the one down the street that just got painted a really dark teal.  Maybe it will look better this Spring.
