Mine got off to a rocky start. Well, in the scheme of things...not a big deal. But the week was long and stressful and Friday .... well, read on!
As you know...we had our bathrooms scraped, re-textured and painted and some other repair work done. Well, we were really happy with the work and my husband asked the same crew to paint the top trim of our house.
HE picked the color (That is important to remember!)
I didn't like it, suggested another and he felt confident that his choice would work. I have been doing so much work on the inside of our home and was tired of making decisions so I relented (probably too easily!) and let him have his paint color. After all, it was JUST going to be on the top trim of the house.
My husband left for work on Friday and I was busy gutting my oldest daughter's room. I went outside at one point to move my car from the driveway and it was going well. The only paint I saw was on the top of the house.
I came out hours later to walk to the bus stop to get my kids and I almost fainted. Seriously.
While I like the coordinating color and the paint job....the only thing I can think of when i look at my house is that it looks like poo!
When my husband came home he was as surprised as I was. The more I looked at it the more it made me cry. (Not literally...I will go on record as not having shed one real tear on this mishap...not worth it.)
So, I figured I would share my poo colored house and story with you all just in case you need a laugh, a cry, or a "I am so glad that didn't happen to me" story.
Without further ado, I am proud to introduce my poo house to you: Jealous?
Note the Beige on the garage door. Plan B is to change out the garage doors, shutters for a dark beige and the trim around the garage door a lighter beige. I am going to leave the top trim the poo color (for now) and see how it looks. It looks OK on the top of the house because of the shadows and it just looks darker up there in small quantities.
Hope you have a great day!!
