House Painted

Back in April, I posted about having our house painted.  
This is what we started with.

The painter dropped off the color chart....a bit overwhelming.

We tried several colors 
(this dark photo reminds me of the rainy days of April).

We knew we wanted something in the tan family to warm up the color.
After much driving around, checking out numerous 
house colors, this is what we chose.

 The actual color name is "burlap".

Welcome Home!
