Our Painted Lady!

We spent the weekend painting.   I've never really painted a house before.  And since Tiny really isn't all that big, I thought...how hard could it be??  Hmmm..little did I know right?  I have to say...I HATE painting!  I am glad it's done.  And that it turned out well.  I am very happy with the finished results. 

We chose a light blue grey for the main color and a darker grey for the trim.  I have always loved coastal houses painted in various shades of grey and blue.  Something about them inspires calm in me and reminds me of storm clouds, which I love.  Hard to imagine that storm clouds and calm go in the same sentence, right?  Storms have never bothered me.  I like to sit on my porch and watch them roll in. I love the scent of rain and the dark clouds.  

So, without further ado, here is our Painted Lady.  She is such a beauty in our eyes. :)






There is a bit of small work left to side and paint near the front door but that will be left until after we get the inside done and the appliances moved in.  That way the door trim and such won't be in the way.










































Even though I hated painting, I am proud of how she turned out.  There is a certain satisfaction that comes with doing a job yourself.  It fills me with joy every time we finish another step in our build.  So yes, I may be sore as heck from the work but my heart is soaring.  I know I say it every post but I honestly can not wait til she is finished.  :)

Thanks Kirsten. We are pretty proud of our baby and ourselves. We are never sure how things will turn out and worry a bit but are always happy in the end. :)

I hope you get to start yours soon Mel.It's a wonderful feeling to complete things yourself. You really appreciate it more, even if it has some flaws. I love the flaws in our place. I think they add character and show we did it ourselves. You'll have to share your build with the rest of us when you get started! We love this sort of thing! :)
