@sherryberry:  yeah that’s a little bright for an exterior.  What colour is the rest of your house? Lots of houses in our area have multiple trim colours. Like paint the posts only a slightly darker shade of what’s on the main house??

sorry thats awful. and if you can’t make the decision why can he? you guys need a compromise – leave it a week if it makes him happy – it’s his fault if he has to do it all over again!

For an exterior? Unless you live in a neighborhood of “Painted Lady” Victorians, that’s crazy bright.

Go to GardenWeb’s paint forum and do some reading. Checkout pictures on Houzz.com.


Not all men are good with color…meanwhile, we discuss the difference between diamond white, white, and off-white.

@sherryberry:  If he’s only painting the trim that color, he might be right. I’m not saying he is right. It’s impossible for me to tell without seeing the house. But I have seen some lovely houses with green trim. Maybe add some gray accents to make it look a little less harsh.
