I guess I could've put this up a few weeks ago, but I wanted to get the whole front of the house done before I revealed the front door. I painted it a few weeks ago and then (slowly) the rest of the front came together. The awning went up, I spray painted the mailbox and the house number sign black, and Jason finished the shutters. Once we painted those and put them up I decided it was time to show you!
So you'll remember that the front of the house looked like this...
It was pretty plain Jane with a white door and forest green accents. I was SOOOOOO sick of that look so now the front looks like this....
Don't you love it?! See the front door? Oh wait, I'm sneaky...I saved that till last. So what color do you think I went with? What do you think would look the best with my cute new black awning, dark grey shutters and white house? And, by the way, did you notice the cute topiary cut-outs that my husband created in the shutters? I love a talented guy like that!
So the wait is over! I chose Benjmain Moore's Yellow Rain Coat and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it so much! It makes me happy when skies are grey...
See the cute topiaries?
And, finally, the "Hello" on the bottom of my door.
Did you guess right? I'm so glad I chose this color rather than the green, and I can't wait until February when winter is really depressing but I have this beautiful, happy yellow door!
Thanks for hanging in there with me while I got it all done! I'll be posting Fall pictures soon with all of my mums and pumpkins planted up in the front pots. I can't wait for that!
These can all be found in this cute little restaurant named Local Flavor... kind of at the entrance to the historic part of Eureka Springs, Arkansas historic area.
Paper collage ceiling nook.... Love.
Who doesn't drink a lot of wine these days... I bet you could have enough corks to fill up a message board like this in 6 months or so. :) Just stay away from those screw tops and waxy corks for a bit.
This last one is a mural of a pear.. it was on a wall in a narrow passage way and the restaurant was busy.. so sorry for the weird angle... Who needs art when you can paint it directly on the wall! Love the colors and textures of this.
PS... this is a cute little restaurant and a yummy restaurant!
