Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living! Today on the blog we are going to chat about the fence project at the new house and take a peek inside my mudroom, which is a work in progress…but then again…my entire house is a work in progress!
Sweet Sorghum Living Outdoor Painting Tips:
1. Use leftover pieces of wood from your project to test the paint colors.
2. Don’t be shy about getting several paint samples to test.
3. Once you have your test pieces painted, live with them for a few days.
4. Check them at different times of the day in order to get a feel of how the color will change throughout the day.
5. Poll your neighbors, friends, and family for their color picks.
6. If you live in a historical home, check out colors that would have been used during the time period of your home.
6. At the end of the day, pick a color that makes you happy and works well with the surroundings.
I am really loving the fence–the style and the color. The fur babies are also loving it–running around free from the leashes! I am so very thankful and blessed to have a handy hubby who truly enjoys creating and building. Most days, we make a pretty good duo *smile*
Sneak peek inside the mudroom
I am currently installing wall art and bringing in furniture pieces. Once I figure out what I want in the room and where I want it all to be, I will decide on paint color. I am leaning toward the color I used in the shiny, happy basement at Sloss Castle–Lime Sorbet by Glidden. It will be a tough decision because the mudroom flows into the utility room which is directly off the kitchen. Bad news is there is no door between the kitchen and the utility room because the original door was damaged…keep in mind this is a 1920 home so the hubby and I will have to go on a hunt for a door–or build a swinging door…Whew! As stated earlier, the entire house is a work in progress!
Thanks for sitting a spell me today as we explored outside painting tips, the basket-weave style fence, and all the projects I have running around in my head! I will be on a road trip for several days–so I am going to attempt to mobile blog…just in case I fail at my attempt…follow all the road tripping excitement on my social media 🙂
