Well here we are…..halfway through summer. Hard to believe I know. Color me happy because I am definitely looking forward to fall.
So I don’t feel like I have to take 2 showers a day to feel fresh. Just saying.
A few years ago when I decided to paint the exterior of my house white…. the only other color I was thinking of using was black or a really dark gray. I think I might have gone there but only if I could have put on a cedar shake roof…..that wasn’t happening:) In my opinion I love wood tones with a dark color….that is a whole other post!
I pulled some dark exteriors to show you how good it can look.
Or you might just say….Sherry has definitely lost it. And I would say yes….years ago though.
Let’s start with some black ones.
I love the brick fireplace….same thought as adding some pretty wood tones for contrast.
Check out this one and see the before under it!
So “ho hum” before right!
One of my favorites especially with the metal roof.
Again..the stone and garage door looks great with the dark exterior.
Let’s explore a really dark gray. I like the green doors and white trim.

Still trying to work on my bookcases….it might be fall before I get time to tackle those:)
Alrighty….happy 4th of July to all of you! I am one of the few who has no plans whatsoever…..and I am gonna roll with it.
