Red Door New Light Fixture

We love our door. We went with Red Ink from Dunn Edwards after trying both the Red Ink and Red Contrast. We added a light fixture that has the same 9 lite panel as our windows! Next is putting up the plaque with the address numbers.


Christmas Morning

The Mister and I woke up to a wonderful surprise. The front of the house was painted! According to Pablo, our house has been stopping traffic all morning and everyone that walks by compliments the color. Our neighbor from across the street that we had not yet met came over to tell us how much he loved it. And it turns out that our next door neighbors who started out pretty apprehensive about "my color combinations" are not only on board, but they have hired our dear Pablo to paint their house! Is it bad to hope they don't paint it the same color as ours? I guess anything would be better than the boring color we all shared.

Below are the pics of the house.


Painting Progress

Here is the progress so far on the house. We went with our first pick, Enchanted Eve. They have done the back and one side of the house. Below are pictures of the progress so far. I love it!

Pablo Picasso

We have our very own Pablo Picasso here in the Los Angeles area.  His name is Pablo, Pablo Soto, and he is amazing. Our siding looked like it had been through a hurricane and back. Pablo took a look a it and said, "I can make it look nice." He said all it needed was a little love. According to our mailman, our house had not been painted in the 29 years he has been delivering mail in our neighborhood. We were not surprised.

We cannot believe all the work this man is doing. I am convinced he is an angel from God. We love him so much and wish we had more projects so we could keep him around longer.

Our siding is done being prepped, sanded, and primed and now for the payoff, watching that beautiful color finally go up. We can't wait to share the finished product with you.
