house painting

Pin It

For the past 2 weeks, I've had guests in my home. My father-in-law and brother-in-law have been staying here helping paint my house. Needless to say, my daily schedule has been upturned somewhat with hosting others and running errands for the job.

Now, the big question is, what color to paint the house? Right now, the house is mostly yellow. I have grown to appreciate the yellow-ness of my house, and really, my preference for it fits right in with me and orange. I know what yellow looks like. It makes the house stand out. Everyone in town knows where the yellow house on the hill is. (So does everyone approaching town from about 3 miles out - you can't miss our house unless it is dark).

There has been some discussion about changing the color, but I just don't know what we would change it to. Jude likes blue, and shades of blue. I'm willing to consider it. But, I'm just not sure... Will it loose the personality is has? Would it be nice to have a less obtrusive home? To not stand out like a big yellow school bus on a blacktop road?

Negotiations are on going. We probably won't decide until the last minute.
