Colors and Completion in View

Sorry for the slack in posts these past weeks. We've been busy bees over here watching our project come together. On the side we were able to have JW's family reunion at the house this past weekend and we also celebrated my Sister's youngest son's 1st birthday. To say the least it has been a good couple of weeks.

Today was a fun day! The kids and I got to spend the day with Jared's Mom and shop for colors at our local Benjamin Moore store for the new doors. We also got to end our day celebrating with her that she has a new job starting in September. This is a blessing indeed and we are so happy for her!

So here's where we are on the project:: 

  • Siding is COMPLETE on the house
  • Doors are installed 
  • Trim is complete
  • Garage siding is complete
There are a few things to wrap up...

  • Replace and stain porch railings & posts
  • Paint exterior doors
  • Stain interior wood on new sliding door
  • Hang new light fixtures on house and garage
  • Hang house numbers on garage 
Here's a preview of the house! I can't wait to show you the full picture but you'll have to wait because I don't want to spoil the reveal! ;D 
Here's the view of the completed trim... I was so happy to see just that going up it looked so beautiful even with the old black paper house wrap (since this photo I & D put up fresh house wrap)! ;D haha
And after the completion of the siding! You can see the porch on the front is still looking sad so that will be in the next post! I couldn't be happier about the way things look around here. It really feels like ours and home...

So Thankful

Twitterpated!

Twitterpated {twit-er-pey-tid}:: Adjective, informal. 

excited or overcome by romantic feelings; smitten. 
Who doesn't get twitterpated by a new door with sunlight splashing in!?

Let the project commence! After a couple of days of looking at our bear bones house the excitement was rising knowing that soon this old girl would get a makeover. ;-) {Every girl loves to be pampered now and again!}

Ivan and Andy Woodard of I and D Home Construction have been diligently working since Tuesday. These guys are great. Details don't slip by them and that is something I greatly appreciate. 



So I have yet to pick out colors for our doors... This is where I'm stuck right now. I feel like I have to see it all together before I can make a final decision but something I'm really loving is the Benjamin Moore App Color Capture! It allows you to take a picture of anything and it will generate colors based on the picture you took...cool huh! Needless to say I have a lot of "Favorites" saved but I haven't picked the one yet.


Hope you're having a fantastic week and gearing up for a great weekend. We have a big week coming up full of birthdays and anniversaries in the family so we're ready for some fun! 

Blessings,
