Can you feel the love???

House painting is underway. It's a slow process. Our painter lost his helper last week, so it's taking a bit longer than we anticipated. Plus, as you can see from all the patching, there was a lot of pre-painting prep to be done.

I picked the house color based on my favorite (discontinued now!) Bazzill cardstock color, Tanner. But when I brought home the sample quart and we put it up on the house, it took on a gold hue that I knew Spouse would not like. (And he didn't. He thought it would make our house look like a jar of mustard.)

So I moved over a couple of steps on the color chart and landed on this slightly browner version of Tanner. The lighting wasn't great when I took these photos, so it's hard to see the exact color.

In real life, it looks like a dark caramel color, or coffee with not quite enough cream in it. I think it's going to be great with our new black shutters and door.



This photo shows the color most accurately. It's such a rich color that it makes me feel warm all over! I keep running outside to look at it. Plus it gives me an excuse to go out and in the new front door. :-)

The painter says I'm "color sensitive." I'd have to agree. Who'd have thought a person could be this excited about color???

Great color choice! I had to LOL when you said you went with a Bazzill color :) Can't wait to see it when it's all finished!
