So we went crazy and did it. I decided to test out 2 colors I had narrowed it down to. Both were a kind of khaki color, with just a hint of green. One was "Fenland" from Sherwin Williams and the other was "Heath" by Martha Stewart. I believe the siding color was "Grecian Ivory" by Sherwin Williams and the color for the shutters and the gutters was "Urbane Bronze" by Sherwin Williams. With the first brush stroke of paint, I absolutely loved it. I knew we had made the right decision to paint it, we just had to choose the perfect color. We ended up choosing "Fenland" but it was a close one.
At the beginning of June, Andrew and I took a quick little vaca down to Destin with our friends, Jeffrey and Mary Melinda, so that we could go to the MS Dental Association conference and get some CE and some sun. We opted to have the house painted while we were gone. I think I was partly crazy for doing that, but Andrew's parents live down the street and popped in everyday to oversee it and update us on the progress. When we got back, we had a brand new house!!

While the colors don't show up quite right in the pictures, you get the idea. Hope y'all like the change as much as we do!
