Not quite three years ago, I painted our detached outbuilding (formerly a garage, then a yoga practice space with the previous owners, now my sewing studio) between summer and fall quarters of school.
This month, we finally got the house painted to match it.
BEFORE (dull, not pretty gray)
AFTER! Pretty blue with lavender front door!
Plus, as my husband pointed out, the sky changed from gray to blue as well!
