An Update on the House

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip to the local Sherwin Williams paint store to pick out some paint samples. To put it simply, I was overwhelmed. There were SO many paint cards to look at. I knew I wanted a gray and white combo, but they literally had 50 shades of gray. How was I going to pick just one?

Thankfully I had my grandmother with me, and she helped me narrow it down to oh, about ten samples. We looked at sample houses and how they had their window trim painted. We meticulously matched every gray sample with every shade of white they had. in the end, I went with Pewter Cast and Origami white.

We had the painters come out earlier this week and make our new house beautiful! It wasn't exactly what I had envisioned, but I love it anyway.

Brandon and I had a slight disagreement about the front door color. His choice won out in the end. Our front door is now a beautiful Crabby Apple.

Check this post and this post to see a few before pictures. It's incredible to see how far we've come.

  2. It looks beautiful, Alisha! And yes, I don't think you realize there can be 50 shades of white until you buy a house. Our living room had at least 8 different samples painted on the wall before we decided on a color combo.

    I wish I could paint my front door! It's a very boring beige. :(

    Happy week!

  3. it's always nice to let the man just win because then he has to do nice things for you until you decide things are balanced. (:

  4. I love the colors especially the door! I love doors that are pretty reds, blues or greens instead of the normal wooden colored doors.
