Friends, there has been some painting going on.
Okay. The barn is still red. But now, a more stately red. A less harlot scarlet. See, the thing is, I love a red barn. Just not that particular shade of red. Look:
Paint on the left there is the first red I chose. Paint on the right is what it looks like now. See what I mean? The first red was too pink. Or coral. Or something. It just wasn't right. Of course, the name should have tipped me off. The bad red was called Combustion. I should have had misgivings right there. The new red? Shaker Red. Duh.
But wait, there's more! As of two weeks ago, the house colors were this dingy mess:
I couldn't find a more recent photo of the pre-red barn, so here's a chilly blast from the winter for you.
As of today, here's where we are:
I think we're getting somewhere.
But paint isn't all that's been going on. This place is getting all kinds of interesting. I'll tell you more about it tomorrow. (For real!)
