Still here, barely and PLEASE vote on the last picture!

Wow, apparently I am very bad a multi-tasking!  Worse than I originally thought!  

Halloween was much fun, as my darlin' husband LOVES Halloween!  I had fun creating and assembling my boys and husband's costumes!   I had to get creative because they don't sell costumes for the things my kids want to be (ever, lol).  But with a bottle of fabri-tac in hand, I did it!  And they all loved the end result!   We went over to my sisters house. She had a little party and we trick or treated together.  More wonderful memories being made! :)


The Incredible Hulk!


Kane and The Undertaker ~ Brothers of Destruction!  And a little zebra they found :)

The house is coming along! All painted right now. Tile is going in (pictures this week!), and looking good!   Ordered stair parts, that had me literally in crazy mode.   I think I'm on decision overload!!!!!!   












Wall color a little distorted from the flash... was using my old camera!


My cousin's VERY talented husband made board and batten shutters for all the windows. They are clear cedar that will be solid color stained.

Now, pretty please with sugar on top, tell me what color shutters you see on this house????????

Originally (many many moons ago) I wanted black, I don't think so anymore.  Plus you will not see the hardware on them and the hold backs.   Olive green?  Brown?  Pink? (JUST KIDDING).   I really need your help!

Kristy, I would do a glossy slate gray.

I like the idea of olive green, would really pop out..or maybe a copper color to tie in the other copper accents? deep burgundy?? choices are endless!!!!!

My first thought also was a dark charcoal grey but then I started trying to picture the olivey and I like it!

Mama Sue said...

I think gray or olive would be good.

I'm so glad you posted, I was wondering where the blogger who was building the house went. LOL! Your home is looking so great! I just love it! I would go with the darker grey too, using the darker grey color that is in your stones. Hang in there, your in the home strecth now!

I'm certainly no expert on color, but how about slate or charcoal gray? I've seen that on newer homes around here with brick and it looks fab.

Ha! I just looked at your other comments and it seems I'm in the majority this time! Good luck Christie.

How about picking up the gray/blues of the stone ? Navy would work too. The house is going to be just lovely - I'm loving the stone and brick out front !

Happy Thanksgiving !!!!!! Hopefully we'll get some colder weather so it will feel like November and not April - lol !

My first thought was you don't need any shutters. why cover up all the beautiful brick and stone details.

Nicole said...

I definitly think you should go with a dark grey or black. I think it will accent the grey brick.

Pam said...

Hey chick...I emailed you some photoshopped shutters....let me know what you think!(pics are horrible, but you'll get the idea!)
