If you follow me on Twitter and happened to be there at the right time and place, you have seen some of these pictures. This late summer we had the major project of painting our house. It has been a rather wet summer so we really didn’t get a typical whole summer to work on it, and so I am a bit afraid that we have a little bit to do next summer too…I am going try to do some this week on my vacation, but if you read my last post, this week is sure full of quitlty/writey stuff. (at least I hope it is!)
So any way here are pictures of the house befores and afters….I think you can figure out which…my befores are really bad because I grabbed them late in the evening after the house was powerwashed and before the painters came to paint the top portions. We painted the bottom portions in an attempt to save a little money…(which is why it’s not all the way done yet).
what’s funny about this side is that I always was afraid it would look really boring, but if you look at the before pix, it might have because the house was essentially just those two colors, butter yellow and aqua…and even though this side doesn’t have the batten strips except in the lower green space, this side still rocks the Painted Lady look. Our studios are behind the upper two window up…..with a great view of our woods. Yeah…I was quite nervous of how this would look. They are very bold colors, and in a quilt I would love them….but on a house I wasn’t so sure…I do though….and that Green? color matched to a solid from Sandi Henderson‘s latest line Secret Garden.
I hope you are enjoying this week at the Blue Nickel so far, I can’t see that there will be a lot of posting after this for while…but I will try this week as I said earlier is Particularly full!….and don’t forget today’s Uberfest designer Amy Lobsiger
