  1. Hi Becky and it is so great to hear from you. The shutters on the house are wood and the color is a dark gray stain called Deep Charcoal which they had mixed for them at their local Menards store using Pittsburgh Paint Stain. The front door, steps and window boxes are all this same color as well.

  2. What color are the shutters on your sister-in-law’s home

  3. You welcome Margaret and I hope this color works for you or gets you on the path to the perfect color for your house.

  4. Margaret Ingold says:

    Thank you! We do have Menard’s here so I will get a can and try it. Looks perfect online.

  5. Good News, I had the information saved as another reader wanted to know what the house color is too. The paint can label says: Dutch Boy Exterior Dura Weather Latex Flat House Paint. Then it says: Nectar C8-4 or perhaps it is CB-4, hard to tell if it is an 8 or a B. Colorant Name: C Yellow Oxid 48 96 192 384 and another reference number is DB800-03 (16). So, they bought this paint at Menards that is like a Home Depot. I don’t know if you have Menards in your area, but the paint is by Dutch Boy.

  6. Hi Margaret, I can find out for you and let you know.

  7. Do you happen to know the paint colors for your sister-in-law’s house? It is so lovely. Thanks.

  8. Your new home sounds lovely Laura. If you’d like to see if it’s a good match to be featured, send me some photos and info through email and/or contact me.

  9. We’re in the middle of a medium farm’y yellow/white trim transformation ourselves. We had quite a life lesson. A small 12X12 or 16X16 patch to check for color isn’t enough. We drove up and almost crashed our car. Way too bright. Had the painting contractor tone it down with white. Paint a wall (at least 1/2 way up). Almost finished, and I’m in love.

    Bought a white painted lattice wood bench for the porch, and some colorful bird pillows. I’ve always lived in HOAs, so this cottage is a new experience. Some neighbors were *itches about it (they are just that anyway), others are blue people and love it. Our home says “welcome” and is so cheerful.

  10. @artandsand Thanks so very much.  I am hoping sister-in-law will let me do her inside and outside of her house when she gets it up for sale.

    The first house we ever owned was a little yellow house.  We didn’t have the money to ‘cutify’ it so it never reached its full potential.
    Thanks for the fun house tour –  I love all of them.

    All of these yellow houses have so much charm.  With their sunny color, they certainly would lift your spirits every time you arrived home.  Thanks for leaving the sweet comment on my Mushroom Houses post.

  13.  @tvonzalez Ah, Gonna Love It, I will stop in to see you.  Glad you like yellow houses!!

    Yellow houses with white trim are my absolute FAVS!  Thanks for the post.  
    Popped in from Gonna Love It.

  15.  @simplybydesign2 What a delight to hear from you today and I sincerely meant that.  Thanks for stopping by to remind me to come visit you.

    I love yellow houses. They are simply charming. I have no doubt that your sister in-laws home will be snapped right up, because of how cute it is. The heat this year has been somewhat annoying. 

  17.  @House Crazy Sarah I know, right?!!  All I can think about now is window boxes and these yellow houses.  Someday, I hope to do the SIL house when it is for sale.  

  18. House Crazy Sarah says:

    oh, some serious eye candy here! Great job Sue! Your SIL’s house is adorable – love the shutters and flower boxes (they almost look dark green on my screen). I’ll have to Pin some of these!!
