The Hubs got back into town after a week-long trip to Cali with his best friend, and so we just chilaxed (as the kids say these days). Just got caught up on life--attended a BBQ with friends, took the dog to the groomer, paid bills, went grocery shopping. Can't you just pee from all the excitement?!
Our house progress is at a standstill again until next week. We've lined up a guy to replace some siding that's been subjected to 20 yrs of Colorado dryness and blistering sun. Next, hire someone to paint the whole house. Our house's exterior looks like the lovechild of a mountain cabin and a country cottage.......hey, it was the late 70's.......with vaulted ceilings.....and a weird atrium addition at the front.
How depressing is this picture from last winter, right?
Right now it's a faded, natural wood color with faded, peeling forest green trim. BLECH! So I've been storming the internet for color ideas for this strange hybrid that has spawned our rustic house.
Inspiration 1: Restore the natural wood color and paint trim a fresh white?
