Well folks, it’s about time to pick out the paint colors for the exterior of the flip. And that can only mean one thing – we’re nearing the finish line!!!
In the past we’ve always painted our little brick ranches in shades of off-white or cream (here and here) or, in cases where we’ve left the brick unpainted, we’ve just added dark brown accents (here and here).
But this time I really want to try something a little different.
Here’s where we’re starting – new-ish white windows, nondescript brick, brushed nickel hardware, a front door that will be stained a rich walnut, and a new medium gray-brown roof.
Here’s a promo shot of the shingles we used so you can have a better idea of what the roof looks like:
And just in case you’re curious, here’s an in-progress shot of the roof going on.
The roof actually had a layer of wood shingles under a layer of composite shingles, and no decking (apparently wood shingles aren’t laid over decking) – I wish I’d seen what the house looked like after they ripped off the two layers of shingles and the roof was naked!
But I digress – back to the color scheme. It’s been decided that we’re painting the brick and trim – and this time around I’m thinking gray. Here are some schemes that I’ve been digging (most of the paint colors were pulled using the Sherwin Williams Chip It! tool – which is sort of handy since our painters are using Sherwin Williams paint):
Do you have any favorites? I’m also torn between navy or black shutters. Have any favorite color schemes that you think we should be considering?
