Paint Job

13 Apr

Before you look at the pictures… I need to tell you that I did try the Inland Green that you all voted for and it was my favorite too. In fact, I even bought a gallon of it and painted one wall of my garage in the color and it looked awful, so there was definitely a good faith effort on my part.

In the end, I chose Pencil Point which was also a Behr color. Its very dark, I know BUT I am happy with the choice. The color hides a lot of sins and the seams in the siding fade away which helps to hide the fact that the siding is aluminum and not wooden. The trim, which has not been changed yet is called Chocolate Froth and is pretty much a creamy off white. The windows are staying black since I need to keep as many layers of paint off of them as I can to keep them from getting jammed up in the tracks.


This was the scariest part


But as we went on the color looked better…


and by this time I was pretty happy with it- remember that the trim is not done yet and that’s going to make a big difference.

Here are some pictures of the back:



We’ve been working for two days and so far we have the whole house covered and have finished a second coat on the front. The forecast is calling for possible late afternoon showers so I’m not sure how far we’ll get tomorrow. I’m hoping to be able to finish off the second coat at least.
