I thought I would re-post
this piece from June about our little
yellow cottage since some of
my newer followers may have missed it.
We haven't really
made any changes other than
putting two coats of the final color on top
of 2 (and in some places 3) coats
of primer. Blue is a hard color
We still haven't made the shutters
but we're still looking at lots of designs.
I'm heading to
Missouri on Saturday to see a cabinet
my sister-in law saw on Craigslist.
We will be spending the night and
while we're there we will be
on the hunt for treasures!
I'm not looking for anything in particular
but you can bet we'll have fun
I'll be taking my camera
so you know what that means....
yep lots of pictures.
Here's the post from June.
I couldn't wait any longer...
I had to share with you our newly painted
little farm cottage.
We're not done painting yet so there's
only a few pictures.
Below...is the 'before'.
Above is the 'after'
of the front.
I actually didn't mind the blue
but it needed a paint job badly
and after asking your opinion
and showing you a few samples
of my favorite colors...
I chose the one
most of you liked.
I think we made the right choice.
Here is how the back looked before.
(see that sidewalk coming towards you to the left? It used to
lead to the summer kitchen/wash house which sat
right there. It was gone when we moved in but the
foundation was still there and we dug it up.)
Well it's not done yet and this is only
the primer but it's close to the finish
We still have to cut the tops off the posts
and stain the fence and back porch.
The front porch 'Before'
The front porch 'After'.
We're thinking of making some
shutters and painting them
a dark green or black.
What do you think?
More pictures to come soon.
