a lick and a promise in gem turquoise

This past weekend we were at my husband’s summer home in Hant’s Harbour. For lots of reasons, the house hasn’t been loved much in the last couple of years and now that we are finally home, we are so excited to spruce it up a bit and LOVE it. So much needs to be done, but we decided for our first weekend out, we would tackle something small that would help it look more loved :-).20130804-152723.jpg

We started with both front doors. One of them is a newer metal door, so it was no problem to paint, but the other one is old and not in great shape so we all had a hand in scraping and preparing it for paint.

How great to all be working on a project together.

The official name of the paint colour is “Gem Turquoise” and it just works. I am IN LOVE with the colour! I had to lobby the kids – they wanted to paint the door red, which would have also been fantastic – but I really wanted the turquoise. I can see so much potential for this house and know we will have fabulous times here. The kids have been exploring and taking photos and video. I will share some with you soon.

Hant’s Harbour is one of the most beautiful places on the earth. You’ll see lots more pics from here.

What do you think of my paint choice?
