I know that I have been MIA for a while now but I just haven't had time to do any kind of decorating. I have really been trying to paint the outside of our home on the weekends but the weather has not been cooperating. The first weekend this month it snowed, the second weekend it rained and this weekend it was cold and windy and it only sprinkled a little on Sunday. I am trying to save us some money by painting the lower part of your house (I am deathly afraid of heights) and have painters do the second story. I have the back deck area done and all the window and doors on the lower level. This weekend I was trying to finish the garage. Here is what the garage looked like before.
It is hard to tell but the garage doors were a dark reddish brown. My new trim color is a dark brown and the base of the house is a light beige color. Now here is the after.
I didn't get the little peak done on the garage as the roof is a little to steep for me. I will let the painters do it.
The roof color that the previous owners chose does not go with the brick color to me. But I thought that these two colors coordinated with the roof color and the brick color.
Besides the garage I have painted the back deck railings, the deck off of the study, all the windows on the main level (18), all the doors (7) and the balcony off the master bedroom. I am still working on the ceiling area on the wrap around porch. I still need to finish the kitchen island inside also. Here is what I have got done so far.
We added the beadboard and the corbels. The 2X4's under the corbels will be wrapped with some fluted trim.
