We decided on our paint color and then the weather turned too dicey for much painting….
The bright blue is a nail salon, the back of which joins onto the first house of our row. The patch job on their side is covering some nasty graffiti which appeared a couple of months ago.
Once upon a time all in the row were the same pale grey. Then one day a fanatical Redskins football fan bought 2 houses and painted them the team colours – yellow & maroon. Hidden behind the tree is a bright green number and then the first showing the original grey. The fawn one was painted last year while we were still dithering over colours. The steel blue is a colour I might’ve chosen except they already had it – they also have a gorgeous purple front door.
To the left of the steel blue is our neighbor – her house is being painted at the same time as ours. Then we have Emjay & her manservant’s house with their newly painted (in Leapfrog) shutters – the only thing that got painted before a couple of days of stormy weather. Our neighbor on the left, Miss A, is also painting – yes we three got a deal from the painter. The remainder of the row is in the original grey and it will be interesting to see if they are motivated to paint.
Hopefully we’ll get the trim finished and some Blackberry on the wall tomorrow!
