The Third Time is NOT the Charm!!

It's been a rough couple of days with paint decisions. Even though the women liked the yellow, I think it has lost its battle with the man in my life. He thinks it is too bright and will be too much yellow on the side of the house. So... We decided on plan #2, which was to pick out a tan color. Tan house, black roof and shutters, red door. My cute husband (who as I said before is in touch with his feminine side) was so worried about the paint color that he researched some "Paint Your House" websites and e-mailed them to me. One of them was Better Homes and Garden, and he even opened an account and created a house with the color combinations that we are thinking about. That is why I love him!!! Our 1st try was with Trusty Tan from Sherwin Williams (directly under the yellow). It looked too pink/peach, so then we went with Sweet Georgia Brown by Behr (under the window). It was too gold next to the brick. The third time was NOT the charm, so I will be going to the house tomorrow with the Sherwin Williams color swatch chart before I buy more paint. Buying quarts of paint just to test on the house is getting expensive, but I guess we don't want to make a BIG expensive mistake by painting the whole house the wrong color. Now we just have to figure out what to do with all of these quarts of paint. Paint party anyone?

By the way, did anyone notice the different wedding picture in The Birds Nest header? Thanks Jennisa for changing it for me. I think it looks better- you can actually see our faces:)

Why don't you drive around and find one you like? I always see colors I like on other houses.

I agree with Dena and I really love the dark one too! I can't wait to see a picture of the finished house- it's going to be gorgeous!
