Here are the porch beams all painted and ready to use. The plywood that will form the roof of the porch is all finish being painted and double coated...and now the facia boards...(did I spell that right?)
No problem with fear of color here!
Maybe later? I hope I am not sorry ...getting a wee late for that I would say!
The flash sort of faded out the brown...
Using the flash out in the garage tonight was not the best way to give you an idea of the color of the boards.
And...they will get another coat of paint. The true color is really at the top of the photo. Its a dark red...with brown in it that goes well with the dark brown of the porch and the roof.
The shutters will be the dark red...matching the trim.
The white board is just a couple of the trim boards that have been primed and will be painted tomorrow. Only two left to go...and we are done. Of course there is the trim around the windows that has to be painted. and the wood that is left on the porch.
With a little luck it will turn out alright. The stones of the porch are tan..as is the wall bordering the property.
The house itself is white... Those red boards sure caught the eye of the neighbors..some drove slowly and some even came over to see WHERE those red boards were going. Ah well....:) They'll get used to it.
I have never chosen the exterior paint on a house before..but here's the thing. You like Cindy's home APPLESTONE COTTAGE don't you? I mean how could you not. My colors are different shades...and our home is white, but...I was so in love with hers..I thought I wanted something like that.
That girl never goes wrong! So...I patterned mine after hers...or close.
Thank's Cindy!! Now...can you just send me a few of your deer? Oh..and that little branch up on top with the tiny apples? Hmmmmm??
Love and hugs..
