Color me.... what color?


So, here we are. I'm finally getting to the post I was going to write when I realized that it would be my 100th post so... I posted about that instead.

Today I will post about the color I need to choose in order to have the house painted. There is a bit of a dilemma because My honey wants to paint it one color and I want to paint it another. So what I've done is painted both colors onto the corners of the porch and I have enlisted people in my community to tell me what color they like. I'm also going to ask ya'll which you like best. The colors seem to be fairly accurate as far as color on the screen is concerned. But, it was a bit overcast when I took the photo's. Not sure if that makes any real difference to ya'll. Anyhow....

Here's the left side of the porch...


And the right side of the porch.


So? What is your suggestion? You can see they are pretty close in color. But it's the tint that is different. And... to keep this fair, I'm not going to tell you which color I chose. Just keep in mind that ya'll are supposed to be "my" friends! Kidding around here. ;-) Which do ya'll like? The top three or the bottom three? Let me know because we have to make a decision by the end of next week! Oh! Keep in mind that we do have a bunch of trees around the front and west side of the house.

Here's a reminder of what the house looks like now.


In the shade...


And in the sun.



There you go. Now if ya'll would help us make our decision, that would be marvelous! Turn in your votes! And thanks for your participation! ;-) Have a great day!

Yep I like the top three.. or the lighter green if you will...I think the other would just be a little too dark over that much house..

Sorry to add in opposition but I prefer the bottom color. I think with the way the sun hits your house it will make your trim pop better. Of course if you don't want pop forget what I said.

Bottom. The top is too bright for me...
