RAIN DROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HOUSE

The paint has finally started to go on the house. I should be excited about this, but the rain WILL NOT go away. The painter managed to get paint on the front of the house and a little on the side before it started to pour and he literally had to run!!! Here are a few photos of what the house look like now






Today he is "suppose" to be back painting since the ran let up for a few days (it's starting back tomorrow), but as I type this he is across the street pressure washing a neighbors house (do you see a problem with that?). I've really been upset lately with this whole process. I'm starting to believe that my "deal" was a deal he was giving everyone and now he is booked. So now I must wait (I guess), and hope that this will not be the only image I'll see out of my window! I need SUN!!!


BTW, you will never believe the deal I got on my paint! Here's the story: I went to the paint store to find a color that was very very close to the Tavern Taupe that I chose from Sherwin Williams. While I was at the home improvement store (that I will not mention), I asked for a sample of the color that matched SW Tavern Taupe. When I picked up the sample, the top fell off and the paint spilled all over my shoes. So I asked for a discount coupon to compensate for the 'mishap'. Would you believe that I was able to get 10 gallons of paint for the price of 1 gallon? Can you believe it? I can't and the proof is on my house! The color is Antique Leather.

I love that color. It looks great on your house. And great deal - I hope the savings in the paint costs made up for the ruined pair of shoes.

Your blog is simply amazing! I found your link through A Soft Place to Land last week and have been addicted to your site ever since. Hard to believe that so many different and absolutely wonderful blogs link up in one place every week.

I have so much to learn. :)

When I put up exterior photos of my house you will die (and not from excitement, but horror!). I have a few more months before I paint, but I may need to get his number if it's a good deal. Anything would be better (even slow work) than what I have. Anyhow, can't wait to see finished pics!

Hi There! What a sweet surprise to see you found my blog! I am excited I have you as a follower:) The paint color looks great so far. I should surprise you one day and post you a picture of the color of our house:)) You might be surprised to see "decorating minds", well they think alike!! Your new house color is very similar in color. Our builder used SW. This was the color my husband and I could agree on.

I love the color. I can't wait to see how it looks when the painter finally finishes! Hoping the rain will stop in your parts soon!

Thanks so much for the tip about linking my post to ASPTL. I was actually able to figure it out (me, who is not good with stuff like that), even though I think I did the link wrong! Hey, at least I got it up, right?? :)

The paint color is on point, and I love that you have two garage doors instead of one large door.
