Exterior Update

Exterior 06.16

Over the past two weeks, I have been slowly working on changing the paint color of the shutters on our house.  The previous owner had the door and shutters painted hunter green.  They also painted the siding and trim the same uniform tan color, which I hope to address at some point.  Right after we moved in, I tackled the front door with a can of Sherwin Williams Resilience paint color-matched to Burning Bush by Olympic.

Now – two years later – it was time to address the shutters.  I chose December’s Eve by Behr – color-matched at Sherwin Williams.  My ultimate goal is to not only add contrast between the siding and the trim, but to also paint the window sashes a midnight blue-black to really make them pop.  Inspiration found here and here.  Maybe in two more years…

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
