Another issue is that the entire house is covered with little Christmas lights. They are stapled onto the trim every few inches. Before painting, all the lights have to be stripped off and the staples have to be pulled out. Not fun!
On this side of the house we are going to install two regular size windows and one small cottage window at the peak. This is the side where the master bedroom is located and we are going to have cathedral ceilings in the bedroom so the window at the peak will offer a little more light and interest.
Here they are. What do you think?
We thought about this for the shutters but I think we're going to end up going with white.
The trim will all be white.
P.S. Later this evening, look what I stumbled upon while on Pinterest searching for shutter colors...The same house but WITH shutters! Hmmmm..I'm so glad we have this as a comparison. Thanks to the homeowners and hiya papaya© for allowing us to use these photos in this blog.
My excursion to the paint store did not go very well today. When I returned home and tested the paint on the house, the colors we chose were very wrong. (I did find a perfectly wonderful door today but more on that another day.) First the paint!
