A lick of paint

We had the most perfect weather here in Melbourne today. The sun was shining and the sky was blue so I thought I would grab my camera and take a drive down to the house to snap some photos to share with you all. To my surprise the painters had started working on the exterior which had me very excited!




I have to say I had the worse time choosing colours! My husband was no help as he didn't want to be blamed if he helped pick the colour and I didn't like it in the end so he stayed clear of decisions. I went through so many sample pots before choosing and then after submitting my colour selection I changed yet again but I have to say I am really pleased with the overall colour now.



I wanted a colour that resembled my creamy French furniture but found it hard as they were either tinted too green or too pink peach. Eventually I pulled out a draw from a piece of furniture and took it down to the paint center to see what I could match it up with. That's when I found a colour called Knave by Solver Paints which screamed French flair. I loved it straight away.

Its amazing what a bit of paint can do.


And here's the vintage dormer all dressed up.

Thanks for coming to visit.

I look forward to sharing more with you all soon.
