SO, like I say...our purple house is being painted...Stephen did the last prep quite fast.  There was very little scraping-priming to be done, and late in the morning the first cans of spring green were opened and he began the FUN part.....he is very quick.  The whole house will be done with the green, then he goes back and details the windows and doors with the cream and periwinkle.  Last is the 2 back decks, the fence, and the foundation will be a fourth color,  called 'spruce blue' which is a dark grey-green-blue color....

The wife tells me "the house looks more purple when it is being painted green!".

You probably love these enormous beer mugs of mine, badass, eh?

Thanks so much for letting us watch. Can't wait to see how it looks all completed! But the process is really fun too!

Purple or green, it will still be a fine looking house.

All shades of green being pretty much universally my favourite colours, I'm approving your choice.
The automated check-out in my local supermarket keeps stopping and saying "Item needs approval".
A member of staff wanders over, in a leisurely way, swipes a card over the laser, and I can proceed. What I really want, of course, is not their clearing of the code-block, but their wholehearted approval. "Hey, great choice with that bottled beer!", or even better "Hey Mr Soub, you're looking great today!".

So. Here it is "Great choice of colours, guys, great choice of house too!"

I liked the purple. Even though it looks blue to me.
And now, minty goodness.
