House Painting

I am finally getting the house painted! Yeah! Remember these colors I picked out ages ago?

Benjamin Moore's Palladian Blue and Dark Salmon

The house will be Palladian Blue, the trim white and the concrete porch (and perhaps a few other small accents), Dark Salmon.

The ancient alligatoring paint will be removed with an infrared device. The work began yesterday. Under the blue, there was yellow, under the yellow, white. The porch had been many, many colors over the years including grey, white, teal (teal?), but under it all, the original stained concrete is...dark salmon. Weird good.

  1. I'm down with that color scheme! It looks quite stately and grand. The next thing from that is to have it painted in such a way that it will cover all the crevices, while still being organic to the house's structure.
