That looks great! And, it coordinates well with the red barn "house" adjacent to it as well. Cool orange door too!

I still need to paint the white trim on the storm door a dark brown. I was even thinking about painting the aluminum storms brown, maybe next spring...

How pretty...mind sharing what paint color you used on walls and trim.
Looks dreamy now.

Let me dig out the paint samples to get the names. I think they were from Ace.

We had a paint guy at different place match the dark brown, he told us he never made a color so dark before, it took tons of pigment to tint. On the label where they put the name of the color, he put "Daylight".

Wow! What a difference! I love those rich ...saturated...yeah that's the term...colors! Just gives your place so much more warmth. The white was just sort of blah!

My place needs painting too....but a ton of scraping first. :?

I think we scraped enough paint off to fill a 55 gallon drum! We found that pull scrapers are the best, way better than the putty knife ones where you push.

Funny thing, earlier this year one of the people in town here painted their white 1940's bungalow-type-thing the same white/blue scheme you just covered up!

Look great & I recommend painting your aluminum triple tracks as you suggest. Ours simply disappear on our farmhouse. :wink:
