I had a detailed plan all worked out in my head for painting the exterior of the house...but that was a year ago. I remember what colors I chose, and know, in a broad sense, which color goes where, but don't remember exactly what it was I was planing for the trim, porch spindles, etc. I should have written it down...but then again, I didn't think it would take me this long to get this far.
I dug out the paint I bought to take another look, hoping it would jog my memory...it didn't. I need to make a sketch of the house, so that I can play around with crayons on paper until I get the look I want.
Originally, I was going to paint the siding light grey...then I changed my mind and decided to paint the siding green. Since then, I've remodeled the studio, coincidentally using almost the exact shade of green on the walls. Look just above the bay window on the left side of the picture...you can see how the green on the house blends into the green on the wall behind it.
Now I want to paint the siding grey again, but I've already painted the edges of the exterior walls, where you can see them in the cut-out sides, green...I'd have to paint those grey without messing up the finishes inside the rooms. Or...I just had a thought...I could cover those edges with grey trim pieces. Sigh...I don't know. I might just paint the house green so I don't have to monkey with the edges.
