House Exterior / Inspirations / paint colors

I Feel it Spiraling Outta Control Already

So remember how I mentioned that 3  years ago I was going to close in a window and move my stove and that spurred on a full fledged renovation?  Well I feel a de ja vu coming on!

I have to get some paint for the additions when it gets to that time AND I hate the current color of my house…

now

Correction.  I LOVE the color I just hate it on my house.  So since I have to get the new parts of the house painted it is as good a time as any to repaint the house.   I went on Sherwin Williams website and they have this super easy tool to paint your own photos.  I chose to outline the areas and then fill with paint.  It was super easy BUT (there is always a but) there was one problem.  Sometimes I would make a mistake and in trying to correct it I would accidentally erase everything and I would have to outline the areas all over again.  I did this several times in a few minutes.  That was a pain.  But when it was working good all I had to do was outline the areas I wanted to paint,  then  tap the magic wand over the photo and bam, my colors that I chose were right there.

Here are my choices now:

12 matches the chimney but uhhhh...ugly

1 matches the chimney but uhhhh…ugly

11 I think I like the two tone effect

2  I think I like the two tone effect

10 not bad

3 not bad

8 makeamepuke green LOL

4 makemepuke green LOL

6 not really

5 would never paint a house black but I acyually do like it and it would make my flowers pop

6 would never paint a house black but I actually do like it and it would make my flowers pop

7- close to the first color that I had to repaint.  Turns out so far it was the best color.

4 My favorite of all

8 My favorite of all

3 Like this color but will probably not use it

9 Like this color but will probably not use it

1 would hate this one after time

10 would hate this one after time…just like the current color…too close for comfort

What is your choice?  I am liking #8 the darkest brown   and I kind of like #6 the charcoal gray.  My mother would be rolling in her grave if I painted my house any shade of black though.  She would say it will bring bad karma to the house.

Do you like any of them?
