Coop color??

post #1 of 184
Thread Starter 

I would like to know what color your coop(s) are! Give us details.. Don't just say blue and white...Tell us blue # so and so OR blue the color of the sky on a summer day , trimmed w/ bright high gloss white.... grass green w/ butter yellow trim... OR a muddy brown --think-- 10 colors mixed together w/ sand colored trim...  It doesn't have to be the actual color NAME --just describe it to us..

I love color. I love bright colors...   And since we will be starting my new coop ASAP-- I am thinking of COLORS....  So, let's hear about your color schemes.. Thank you

The front gables are cream.  You can't see them from this angle.

Mine is medium purple/grey with a lighter lavender and off white trim. Olive green doors and windows and green metal roof. Believe it or not the main house is painted with the same colors minus the green with a few dark purples and antique whites thrown in   lol It's a big old Victorian. It's called the Wisteria house in my neighborhood. I someday would love to have a rustic looking coop with natural weathered wood but that would look weird in this area.

Mine is a pretty pale blue.  Can't remember the color name on the paint can, but it's like a sky blue or robin's egg blue.  The trim is just plain old white, because we had a bunch of it laying around.  And the inside is a warm sandy tan color, just about the color of straw, because we had tons of paint leftover after we painted our bathroom (oops).  And brown shingles.  I think when we need to repaint it (eventually) or if we ever build another I'm going to spring for a light purple/lavender color, even though the blue we have now is very pretty and quite cheery.

The blue in the shadow (egg box) is the most accurate.  The parts in the sunlight are more washed out than what the color really is.

CopperCT I love ur coop. I'm working on mine now & it's Lovebird Blue mixed from oops paint...pretty much a Robins egg blue. I also am going to paint my egg box navy with on hand paint. Trim work is bright white . Colors match my house.

Rainbow eggs and self sufficiency.
