    Well, I told myself I would pick pale calm colors.
    I told myself I didn't want a bold coop.
    All of my inspiration photos were neutral..


    This is what happened after I actually went to BUY the paint.

    The color looked SO much like a bold Auraucana blue egg and I chose to paint the inside a pale peachy pink like the insides of some of my girl's eggs.

    So much for modesty!

    ETA: these pictures make the blue look very mellow. Its actually VERY bright.

    Just picked up my paint yesterday. Thought about the calm nuetral thing but thought "screw that", I ended up with white for the trim and inside and bright yellow for the exterior walls. So now my coop screams "in your face city dwelling neighbors I HAVE CHICKENS"!

    Couldn't resist putting the door back on for a photo op.
    It is white although it seems pink in this photo.
