Nice Surprise!

I was very excited to see the front of my house all painted when I got home on Monday! There is still a little to do on one side and the whole back needs done but at least it looks better.
On Tuesday I put out some fall decorations and yesterday I washed the windows. Can you see how they sparkle?

The dark green is very close to the original color. I did change to cream, instead of beige and the burgundy is redder than before. The other color faded to almost mauve and I didn't like it.

It's scary to pick colors for a huge house but I'm very happy with my choices. What do you think?.

Jean, the colors are just 'made' for your house! And what a lot of work to do, I can only imagine your surprise at seeing this progress. Your windows are all sparkly-clean too, I wish I had your energy.
Very elegant!

The colors you chose are so lovely and really make the house stand out.

I love the pic in your header of your decked-out-for-fall fireplace as well!

Jean the new paint colors look so wonderful together. I can never make up my mind when it comes to choosing colors of paint. I maul it over forever LOL! You made some great choices.
I just love your header picture!Can I ask a question? Is that wallpaper on your wall or is it that textured paper you can paint over? Looks so pretty and clean. I get so tired of looking at all my wood paneling.
