getting closer

My dad and mom mentioned they wanted to see the door color. So here are some more pictures. Um...the door color is called "punk rock" and it is a little shocking. But I promise you I have a vision (and a house that I stalk that has the same color door) and it will look right once the black shutters are put up (they came in today) and once the trim is white instead of forest green....
We still need to cover the awning in bead board and trim. We also need to paint the concrete bottom of the house. I know in this picture it looks like it doesn't need painted but it is like a purple color compared to the vinyl color.

The door looks brighter then it is I swear. Here is the address sign that I made. It is going to look adorable with the black shutters right next to it.

The side. Along with all my notes for what need to be done. I love the fake shutters that I made in photoshop....the real ones are going to look so awesome.
This is what style they are.


Cortney working on something. And Rob wanting us to come inside.


The back...duh. The trim needs painted and the concrete. ANd what do you think should we should do with the striped chimney?


One last post of the door. Hmmm...we will have to see how it looks once the shutters are up, and the crazy forest green trim is gone. I think I love it.

Oh...and the light next to the door. It used to be brown and I spray painted it black. It is amazing what you can do with a little spray paint.

Why do you know how to do all this stuff? It's weird to me. Not the door color. Your freakish abilities.

Cindy said...

I think it looks awesome! I love front doors that 'pop'. Can't wait to see it all done!

Angelique said...

Wow. I'm always impressed with how much just paint can do. I love the green door, too.

quit apologizing for that RAD door color! I LOVE IT. Such a fun diversion from plain old red or black.

The house looks awesome!

Camille said...

It looks so good. I really like it. I could never convince Jason- I barely convinced him to let me paint ours tan.....oooohhh the drama!
Seriously though, I love it. AND I think you should leave the chimney. It adds a little charm. A house w/a bright green door can def pull off a few stripes.

Wow, Ashley! The house looks so amazing! I'm jealous of people with vision like you....it's totally cool! Congrats to being so close to done!
