black black and more black...my newest obsession...



we will be painting our house starting this next week (doing it ourselves...cuz I didn't win the lottery and can't budget in house painters...)

so I have been trying to decide what colors...

since we have the TINIEST little 2 bedroom cottage, I decided on cream for the overall walls...
with some shade of green for the windows...
but...
I decided on black for the doors and the steps going up to the house...

so since I had some "other" things around the house that we have had FOREVER...I thought that I would spray paint the garden set shiny black...
the trellis we bought years and years ago for $20 at a garage sale-it was already black...so it was perfect already...
and the cushions on the adirondack' s were the absolute ONLY ones that matched the color scheme...I found the first one at a TARGET store for $8...and had to travel to 5 more Target stores to get the other 2...
can't wait to get the cottage painted...
my new obsession...
(by the way, didn't steal the church sign. They had bought a new one and were going to throw it away...I offered to buy it instead!)

I can't wait to see your pictures. I love the color black and find I bring it in my home more and more. It's beautiful and makes a gorgeous statement, Char
