We purchased our home in May 2003 and it looked like this:
I am not a big fan of brown and boy it sure looked dated to me. It stayed that way for about 4 years. I just worked with it and made the best of it.
In 2007, we decided to replace all of our windows and we wanted a historic look for this 1923 craftsman bungalow so we chose "Renewal by Anderson" windows. They were expensive but they gave us the look we wanted, and not to mention the energy savings, and I love them!!!!!
So after the windows were installed we decided the brown had to go, So much ado later and many bottles of paint samples we had a custom mix by Sherwin Williams that we called " King Green". We chose along with the green a custom mix called "King Tan" and also used a stock SW color called "Muslin".
This will be the first in the "My House" series......next time we go inside.......
