So were pretty much done with the actually building of the coop and now were thinking paint colors, since it's reused materials, and looks a bit terrible right now. So our house is White with a pretty ugly red trim (it's the color it was when we moved in and we did NOT choose the color). My husband is convinced that we need to paint the coop red and white to match the house, and so we decided on painting it red with white trim, opposite of our house. Thing is, I hate our house color, and really had my heart set on painting the coop bright apple green with white trim... Well when I was browsing the paint department at Lowes today, there on the discount paint rack was the PERFECT apple green exterior paint(and it's that expensive Valspar High Def too!) For $5. So I took that as a sign, and bought it along with the gallon of white paint for the trim. So my husband probably isn't going to be extremely happy, since he was set with painting the coop like the house. And he's not much of a "signs" person. So my question is, does your coop match your house? We live in a neighborhood with lots of funky old houses (most of Portland is like this) that are some wacky colors, so it's not like it would be this crazy thing to do. And it's not like you can see it from the street since it's in the backyard. AND it's not like we don't have this funky set of rainbow shutters across our driveway, so our house is already funky anyways... This is what our house looks like: And this is what the green looks like: I just slapped up a quick bit to get a sense of what it would look like. Don't mind the random white splashes I was just testing the white paint. All the trim with be white, including the windows doors and vents, as well as the wood for the run. It's probably not everyone's cup of tea, but I think I like it!
