Well hello there. If you've been reading this blog for awhile then you know I really don't like the fact that my house is painted red. I've always envisioned it white or gray or even black. This waffling over paint colors has gone on for the 6 years we've lived here. We do know that this house was pink at one time and I guess I like the idea of returning it to one of its former colors. The house is 125 years old so I know it has probably been quite a few different colors. Anyway, my mind has been made up. Pink it is! I know it is a far cry from white, gray or black but I think it will be perfect. Above is just a small sample of Lady Pink by Valspar.
As you can see in this photo, the pink to the right is one of its former colors.
The house needs painted in the worst way so all I have to do (besides gather the $) is narrow down the color. I want it to be a pale pink but not peachy. I think if any house was ever gonna be painted pink this cottage would be a good candidate plus pink is really just red's little sister. I'm sure the neighbors will still freak out because everyone seems to love the red besides me but you know what? They are just gonna have to get over it.
