Painting my house yellow..Yay!

With the Easter break soon upon us Fred has planned to paint the exterior of our extension to match the rest of the house. Then when that's done it will be up to me to paint all the trims and front door white. I hope it's still going to happen as it's been raining since yesterday! Oh well atleast my grass will start to grow where we had that massive pile of dirt right in front of our house, that came out of the excavations. My garden will be loving it too  as everything was a bit dry as you may have noticed from my garden pics.
this is the original front verandah

Sorry about the messy curtain in the back there, that's my laundry which we haven't painted yet and I just tend to throw everything in there right now. That's another post.
I am also looking forward to starting on the landscaping around the front.. but that may take a while.

Hope y'all have a great day, take care, Maryann

If colours were people the yellow would be the happy gang – orange, its close neighbour in the colour spectrum, would be the go-lucky crew. If you need something positive in your life, these are the colours that you should look to use for the positive energy and a more invigorated and energy-filled approach to life

Hey Maryann, I LOVE your gingerbread trim on your house! It's so sweet! I love yellow on a house, it's so bright and cheery. We have one painted yellow in our has white trim, but is accented in a very pretty turquisey blue. (it sounds terrible, but looks beautiful!) :)
Thanks for commenting on my lampshade makeover, I'm still training my hubby to stop at all large garbage piles that have interesting stuff! LOL :) Maybe after the lampshade he'll get it! :) hee hee hee
Have a great day and good luck with all our house projects!
Hugs and Blessings
