Oh my goodness...choices, choices!

Well, hubby and I are knee deep in paint chips. Trying to decide on a house color has got to be at least #2 on my "Things I Do NOT Like to Do" list (second only to cleaning the bathroom).

How does one decide on a paint color that I will have to live with for at least 10 years? The last time we did this, we chose what we thought was a subtle gray. Our friend, John, got the first coat on and when I arrived home after was more like a silvery blue. Not that there's anything wrong with blue, but when you're expecting gray...well, it was a bit of a surprise.

This time we took the time to buy paint samples and painted squares of each color in a shady spot and in a sunny spot on the house. It wasn't easy, but in the end we chose Stream Bed for the body of the house, Black Magic for the shutters and Pure White for the trim.

I'll keep you posted on the progress! Blessings...Susan
