    I finally got around to painting my Small Chicken/Rabbit Hutch the other day! I want to paint it a different color, but for now I just gave it two coats of White Paint. [​IMG] Let me know what color you think I should paint over the white! [​IMG]

    1950 aqua blue! With a sweet, soft yellow trim. It will feel like the gingerbread house. Pretty sweet setup you've got going there.

    Quote:Thanks, I was kind of thinking "Barn Red" w/ white trimming but I dunno Barn Red is kind of "Over Done" already. [​IMG]

    I live in a red and white house, with a red and white garage and a red and white barn. I am just dreaming of a different color, but it is too much dratted painting here.

    I am painting mine Old Hunter (green) with Cabin Red trim..... to match my horse barn and shed. It sort of looks like Christmas, which I love.

    I think it looks good in white. Very clean! I think it needs some wrought iron touches! [​IMG]

    Since you live in Texas I would leave it white. White reflects heat. You might trim it out in red but a darker color will definately make the inside hotter.
