I have a little curb appeal for you today! You remember how I went on and on about my outside paint color BM China White.
That it was the best white absent of blue, yellow or any of those yucky undertones that can make you want to punch white in the face sometimes.
Here is Amy and Chris's house [Chris is my stepson]. They asked me for paint colors and well I was happy to shout out "BM China White" hands down...without a doubt....if you don't paint it that color then I will make fun of any other color you might choose.
Before it was yellow with black shutters.
Now she is sporting a whole new look with BM Kendall Charcoal on the shutters, the porch floors and BM Whythe Blue on the door.
Oh Mommie.....I want to paint my door this color so badly. And I love that they kept the old brass hardware.
We cut Whythe Blue by about 75% to get a much lighter version for the ceiling.
They only moved in last fall and the house sits back from the street with a lot of mature trees surrounding. I think the lighter color and the brighter blue door will help it get noticed and isn't that what we all want.....just to be seen:)
In other news....I have been shopping for a small table to go in front of a window seat. Lord people there are very few small tables to be found.
Here is my inspiration picture. I was going to have this one built for a million dollars but that pushed it slightly over budget.
I have been looking at flea markets for something that could be painted.
Here are a few contenders.
Pretty but a little small.
Again...good size but needs painting.
Love the wooden top....
Gotta make a decision soon....
OK....just in case anyone out there has some info to share with me I am going to use this blog to shake it out of you.
I have posted many times about my dogs and the one who just recently had his spleen removed.
He is Zipper, my male sheepdog. I had to return him to GVS for 3 days because he could not keep any water down. After all of the testing....... it's been diagnosed as a bad motility problem which means he has a hard time moving food through his body.
Apparently this was also the cause of his twisted stomach, inflamed spleen and constant bloating which have all cost me a small fortune.
So.....long story short....low fat diet, gas ex, and a medication everyday. If anyone has had any experience with this complication....please share.
Scott's is coming up and I am one excited puppy.
