I'm in a Khaki State of Miami

Aunt Dot, who is in Idaho this week, asked me to post some pics of the work in progress. My house is going from a bright yellow to khaki.

These pics were taken in poor light, but I think you can get an idea of the change.
I'm in no way a neutral kind of girl. Anyone who knows me knows that I adore color in all things...especially decorations and paint. So, this is a big change for me. However, I'm thinking that it will look nice with my dark blue canvass awnings on the front of my house.

I'm bumming b/c my painter was AWOL today. Not sure why, so I only have one coat on one of the walls of my house. I wish he'd hurry up!

btw, you can't really tell from the pic which looks like a dark beige to me, but there is actually a green tint to the color

Good Lord, its a vicious cycle. now i'm thinking that the shitty chain link fence, that I HATE, needs to be spray painted black.

I can't see the color. It looks biege to me. Chain link fences are supposed to look like that. It isn't wrought iron.

Carol and Taylor said...

yeah, but maybe if I painted it black, it would look cleaner and maybe be less noticable.

Black is always good - all about hiding the dirt! I feel your pain. We painted a bedroom and switched rooms with Sara. Now we're switching bathrooms, which has led to a complete reorganization and its becoming a never ending project. Vicious cycle. Hope the AWOL painter returns.
I think it will look great!

Hey! I loved the yellow, but I am really liking the khaki too. Hope the painter makes it back today!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
