its kinda fun...just us girlsthat is how we roll most days
so when the weatherman said there was a winter storm coming instead of dashing off to target with everyone else scooping up all the bread and milk
we went to brass armadillo to see if there were any fun architectural pieces for the home!
we didn't walk away empty handed we found a pair of really awesome weathered shutters for either side of our kitchen window
one side was mostly green
the other was the grey that we really squealed over!!..layla shared about this stuff that you can paint over all the chippy to keep it from flaking off so we ordered some through amazon
above photo from lettered cottage:)
i am really wanting to keep the walls and main things really neutral and then add color in changeable places cause i am prone to change...
as far as the main paint color it chose us we painted several squares of each color
glass of milk - martha stewart swiss coffee - benjamin moore classic grey - benjamin moore
in the kitchen, living room and all three girls bedrooms
then we just lived with it for a couple of weeks. letting the light from sunrise to sunset fall on it the house chose the color really..
classic grey won out much to my delight
we are loving how the light from the big windows washes the whole house with a happy glow!
i love coming home now..and that my friends is what paint color is all about...it is a cheap albeit laborious antidepressant!

i want to leave you with rodney "gypsy" smith words from the book that wouldn't leave me..and i pray they won't leave you either that they will MOVE us to draw a circle around our ourselves...
gypsy's secret was revealed to a delegation of revival seekers, who asked him how God could use them, just as He was using gypsy. without hesitation, gypsy said, "go home. lock yourself in your room. kneel down in the middle of the floor, and with a piece of chalk draw a circle around yourself. there on your knees, pray fervently and brokenly that God would start a revival within that chalk circle
