Repaint the exterior because:
- We hated the colors
- The darker rust color was chipping and peeling
- I love bright/impactful doors and this scheme didn't lend itself to that
- Did I mention we hated the colors?
|Don't mind the trash cans|
|Here's an up close of the mess|
The shutters were taken down to install the windows...they were rotted and we decided to just leave them off. Apparently, the house was a different color where the shutters had been. Awesome. We have a house with like four colors going on. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can fix this!
So on to the fun stuff. I know I want white trim and black shutters. I think I've narrowed those two choices down, but it will really depend on the main color I choose. The main color will need to go well with the roof and the brick.
|Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black for the shutters|
|Sherwin Williams Snowbound for the trim--this is showing up a little bit gray here. Its just one shade off SW Pure White, which I used on the trim at my old house.|
Here are some of the main colors I'm contemplating. I want something that reads gray at times and tan/khaki at other times.
|SW Pewter Tankard|
|SW Morris Room Gray|
