Happy Monday!

I'm still recovering from the 4th of July long weekend. Had a great time, and a year seems to long to wait to relive it all again.

So it's back to house dreaming....

 It's rare that I find arched doors when searching. These caught my eye. 
Upon taking a closer look, It's the simple latace that had me taking notes.
I'd like to add this to the inside of my patio, painted white of course.

Again the soft curves had me stopping for a longer look.
I don't think it's right for my house, but I like it.

One of my biggest challenges has been selecting paint. I do have choices, but have
an approved pallet pre-selected. None are working for me. None.
So I stumbled upon this photo and it is painted BM Edgecomb Gray.
This is a color that is so often recommended to me by true 
professionals. It's time for a tester, and review....

This picture sucked me in.

Any thoughts?

Thanks for stopping in as I mull over decisions that have me
sleeping less, stressing out, and constantly second guessing myself.

I have comfort knowing I'm not alone.



  1. I love the look...don't have great taste...its going to look fantastic! Glad you had a great 4th!

    1. I've been thinking of you and your son!!! Glad to see your able to get in some blog relax time. Putting it into perspective.... It's just paint!

  2. I can imagine making so many decisions can become stressful at times. Just trust your gut. You have amazing taste.
