I decided to get some of my siding scraps and paint them the two primary contenders for the siding color.
The pictures aren't great but they will give everyone a better idea of what the paint would look like on the house and how it will show on the siding.
With these it's much easier to see what Brae meant about the detail of the siding disappearing with the darker color. I still love how the blue pops against the white.
These are chalk paints though, and I can't seem to find the same colors in regular paints. I wonder if I took the bottles to Home Depot if they could mix up some paint samples for me? I'd like to get some of that paint that has the primer in it since I've noticed paint tends to seep into the wood quite a bit.
The colors are Folk Art's Home Decor chalk paint in Nautical (dark blue) and Cascade (teal).
One last look at the paint on the siding, against the trim and stonework.
Any more opinions? Or suggestions for paint matches that aren't chalk paint? I think if I found something that's a semi gloss the detail of the siding might come out more.
