October 13, 2009Tuesday’s Retro Guest – Jan’s Ranch Painting Ideas – Spring Is Right Around The Corner!
It’s time for another Tuesday’s Retro Guest Post! I love this, and this one is no exception. Our retro guest poster this week is Jan, and she has some great painting ideas for your brick ranch!
Okay, so we’re barely into Fall, but, it’s never too early to make a To-Do List for Spring projects! Besides, I’m a Gemini and I change my mind a lot, so I need the extra time!
My Spring Project for 2010? Paint the trim on my 1955 brick ranch.
I’ve “painted” a few retro colors on my home at the Behr.com Color Visualizer (ignore my attempts to stay within the lines). The colors are based upon memories of what I saw painted on the trim of brick homes back in the early Sixties; aquas, corals, browns and light greens and yellows.
My ranch with traditional white trim. It’s okay, but the two brick ranches across the street and the brick ranch to the north of me (brick color is exactly the same) all have white trim.
The first color is Aqua Spray, then…
Key Lime (which looks more like celery green)
Lemon Pound Cake (don’t you love these names?)
And South Kingston Brown
So,my fellow MCM fanatics, what color makes you gasp and call for smelling salts? If your favorite color isn’t shown here, tell me what it is. I’m open to all suggestions!
PS-the roof color is very close to the brick color.
