Having Second Thoughts…
WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU CONTINUE TO FOLLOW ALONG ON OUR RESTORATION JOURNEY?
Back to paint colors… So I have been glued to Pinterest for about a week now. And every single time I search “craftsman white exterior” absolutely nothing comes up. Seriously try it. It’s crazy. I know… I know… I know… Craftsman homes aren’t historically white BUT I just had my heart set on something light and bright. Something different. But I just can’t seem to visualize it.
Sunday after church we picked up several more quarts at the paint store and headed over to OHW to try out a couple more. And I just CANNOT DECIDE!!! The painting crew is literally getting started today but they do have several days of scraping and wood repair before I actually have to purchase the paint. And then I got to playing on Benjamin Moore’s Personal Color Viewer paint visualizer. And I have to admit… I started to kind of fall IN love with a dark charcoally blue and fall a little OUT of love with the white. See what I mean?!?…
For some reason this image did not work the best with other colors so I found another image from another angle where the lighting was better and the color visualizer seemed to work better.
Here are some ideas and let me know in the comments below what YOU like best!
So here was our favorite combo from my last post…
