farmhouse: stripes and paint.

Sheetrock is all done and it looks like a real house with real walls... 

Exterior siding is all done...

So. much. mud. I forget how many boxes of sheetrock mud we counted. So, so many.

But the "stripes" are all done. (That's what the kids called it. "They striped my room!")



Corey kind of likes his garage...

It's big. The same size as the one we built at our old house, but this one seems bigger without the stairs in the corner (no loft in this one.) Plenty of room for riding bikes and scooters. =) 

I can't wait to shower in here... (I'm sooo tired of shaving my legs in a tiny little corner shower stall.)

The view from our backdoor... 

Exterior paint... (Did you know Sherwin Williams has approximately 88 shades of gray?) And we narrowed it down to one!


Interior doors have arrived...

They're upside down right now...

And... interior paint! Walking in the garage door...


My favorite view... (love that pop of turquoise!)

If you were ever in my old house, you should be amazed that I only picked 5 different colors. Especially amazing since 3 of the colors were for the kids' rooms. The rest of our house... 2 different colors. Honeydew and Raindrop.

They were so excited to go see their rooms...




Happy colors.

Looks DREAMY, Amy! I giggled when you made your comment about choosing only 5 paint colors. Honeydew (GREEN) and Raindrop (BLUE)...I know you say you don't have a favorite color, but this is, yet again, another example of me getting to point out to you that, once again, you chose green and blue! :) Love it! So excited and happy for you friend!
