Our main objective this weekend was to finalize our exterior paint color. We had just repainted our house a year or two ago and went through this. It’s horrible. I hate trying to figure out what paint color will work. I had assumed that we would use the same since we would still have some of the color on our house, but since they replaced our siding 100% we have to do this again. We drove around all evening looking at houses and we though we spot one that we really liked. Just like last time we did this, I did that awkward thing where I hopped out and asked the owner of the house if I could match my paint swatches to it. Luckily everyone has always been really nice about it. Last time one person painted a board for me to match it another just explained how they picked it. This time the lady was super nice and offered to let me borrow a can of paint with the formula on it, so I could paint part of the house and then be able to order it. She was so nice and helpful.
That color was a little to brown for us, so we went with a more grey color. We chose Benjamin Moore Storm Cloud Grey 2140-40 for the body of the house and Benjamin Moore Winter White OC-21 for our trim.
Now onto interior paint. This is more difficult than I thought. We have to pick wall, trim, cabinets and ceilings and it is hard to focus on each room.
Below are recent pics from Friday. They are doing a great job on tiling. I never realized how slow it is to tile, but that just shows that they are taking their time and doing it right.
