Buh-Bye, Mint Green!

I'm all about mint ... mint chocolate chip ice cream, peppermint tea, mojitos wish muddled mint leaves, you name it :) But mint green as a trim color for our house? Not really doing it for me. We inherited this shade when we bought our home, and it was really the last thing on our to-do list for a while. I think we got so used to it, that we kind of forgot how funky it looked (on both the front AND back, ha!):

Well, surprise surprise, we've started painting out front. We also got a new roof (a hail storm caused damage, so our insurance company covered the replacement), so it was high time to update the rest of our outdoor look! We chose a nice pale tan to complement the bricks and the roof, and a deep, grayish brown for the shutters. I'm so thrilled with how it's looking so far. Ben and I stood in our driveway gawking for a good little while yesterday. We truly hadn't anticipated what a difference some fresh paint would make on the front of our house! Here's a teaser that I snapped using my brand-spanking new Instagram account. I'll have some more photos for you as soon as it's all done!
