A matching garage!

Anyone remember our lovely gray garage??
Here's a refresher:

Ouch. That thing was ugly. Thankfully I no longer have to look at that mess! A few weekends ago, Tyler and dad finished power washing, painting and adding siding.


Now everything matches and it looks wonderful! 
We just have to add the light back on the front and maybe replace that door... or at least re-paint it. You know how much I love to paint.

Speaking of paint... Tyler painted the lean to roof black. See his in action shots below...

It looks soooo much better! I'm so grateful to have a two handy men in my
 life & family that is always willing to help!
See those windows hanging from the roof? Yeah, that's our next battle! We hope to get that sun room closed up before winter... mainly so June can watch the snow fall all day!
 That diva always gets what she wants... she is pretty strict and definitly knows how to relax ;)

The one with the Heirloom Red Door

I posted this photo on my Instagram a while back... you may have seen it :)

When I saw this photo on Pinterest, I knew I had to have this color in my house somewhere...

BINGO! Back door it is. Perfect spot for a pop of color. So, I took the plunge, bought the paint and we got down to business..
Mom came over to help me with the task... She secretly loves painting. If she sees something while we are out shopping and doesn't like the color, she will buy it and paint it. haha! I laugh but gosh we are so much alike its scary...

We found out June likes to paint too... just couldn't stay out of it! She is always getting in the middle of things. Curiosity paints the cat.

Now, I'm happy every time I walk through the front door and see that pretty red door!
Final Product :
What do y'all think?
Would you ever make a bold statement with paint like this?
