Cozy Cottage Porch

The winter snow and spring rains left us with a very leaky roof and a front porch floor all warped and worn… so what’s a homeowner to do?  Get a new roof and redo the porch, of course!  Choosing a grey slate floor was the easy part and with the walls painted Benjamin Moore White Chocolate, we’ve been considering painting the ceiling blue.

But what blue to use?  We took a queue from one of our boys’ favorite childhood shows and sat down in our thinking chair to think… think… thi-i-ink!

With help from online friends (the girls from Design Chic, House of Turquoise and Get Your Martha On), we followed some blues clues and fell upon this beautiful blue home by Linda Banks.

Several emails and five paint swatches later, we’re down to two:

Stay tuned for the big reveal coming later this year…  ’cause when we use our minds and take one step at a time, we can do anything…  that we wanna do!
