As much as I would love to be able to paint my coops in any color my heart desires and be able to afford premium paints, I can't. I have to pinch pennies. This means shopping the mis-matched paint aisle at walmart. With my first coop I lucked out. I found the right paints in the perfect colors; two of my favorites - confederate gray for the interior, Carolina blue for the exterior. We just got home from paint shopping for the juveniles coop. I wasn't as lucky this time. I don't have to worry about painting the exterior; it's already tan with brown trim. That will work until I can afford to repaint it. It's the interior that's going to be awful. I got Kilz paint and primer in one for the very low price of $7 (reg. $27), but it's "free range egg yolk" orange. For the floor, super tough paint, in brick red. I sure hope my chickens will want to enter the coop and won't hate me forever.
