Outside Doors Painted

The doors were painted last week.  I'd picked a vibrant daylily color.  It was my first choice, then I wavered and started chickening out to go with a sea blue, then a green that would match the peak of the house.  I settled on one of those, but by the time I'd driven home, I had gone back to daringly vibrant again!
And now that it is on the doors, I'm glad that I went the brave route.  I am liking it.
I still think I need some white cornice fretwork up in the peak.  Right?

Here's the view from the open back door (Vibrant Day Lily), across my new finished kitchen floor, and into the livingroom.  You can't tell from the lighting here, but the kitchen is actually a lighter green than the livingroom.
And here is the livingroom flooring finished.  It still has some dark stains on it probably from an old kerosene heater or wood stove once upon a time.  The wood stacked is trim for windows and doorways.  It is still too light red for my taste, so we are working on darkening it up some. I want a nice shine to it, so it needs a good shiny coat of shellac.

Still not kitchen cabinets picked out.  Bathroom fixtures are not installed.  Stairs are not done.  I don't think we'll be spending any days there this summer either...sigh.

  1. I've been wondering how things are going, guess life kind of got in the way, right? Still, it is looking more and more gorgeous. What a place it will be to stay in, Donna. Home is where the colors are? Thanks for sharing!
