I bought the Garden Coop plans and this is my first construction project. I'm awful with picking out colors and I'm hoping you guys can help. For reference here is a coop that I love... http://www.thegardencoop.com/blog/2012/03/16/california-garden-chicken-coop/#more-2253 I already painted the white pine lumber for framing...the color I believe is called Antique Farmhouse. I also bought a stain (Cabot's Australian Timber Oil in Jarrah Brown.) I tested the stain on a scrap piece of pine. Although I'm going to use cedar for the rest of the wood. Here are the colors... I'm not going to change the color of the frame since I already did so much work on it. Would it look good if I used the stain on the henhouse and door, and then used a lighter paint (maybe light yellow or teal) on the purlins, rafters, and windows? Or does the stain and paint color really not go together??
