    it's going to be PINK! [​IMG] I wanted to do it red with white trim to match the horses' run-in...well, apparently the red stain just wouldn't mix up correctly and kept turning out brown, so he chose a different color. Dogwood. And when she dried a sample on a paint stick, oh yeah, it's PINK. He says pink is better than brown. [​IMG]

    Guess I won't be locating the coop anywhere near the run-in!

    My clearance shelf paint that was supposed to be Redwood brown turned out to be dark purple! Unfortunately it didn't show until it really dry and by then I was almost done with the whole coop. I took a painted board back to the paint store and the guy laughed so hard tears were streaming down his face. I couldn't complain to much since it was only $5 for a gallon, but I had to show him. It's still purple.
     
  7. I have been kicking the idea around of painting my coop pink and white. Our house siding is sort of an Arizona tan, looks tan but in the sun it has a pinkish hue to it . . .and I love pink. I saw one somewhere on here or another site and it was cute as a bug's ear!!!

    I think a pink coop is perfect! My daughter concurs. Do you have Silkies? They deserve a pink coop![​IMG]

    My mom LOVED cranberry pink so our kitchen was that color, the barn, and the doghouse.

    Pink can be cute. This one is like a petal pink... it's what the customer chose but, I really like it. We painted up others a similar shade and everyone loves them... the first pic I enhanced and doesn't show the true color.
