Painting the Stucco
We went with a stock colour for the stucco. It was a bit lighter than the old addition, but really hard to see much of a difference, and they told me that it would darken over time.
I tried to like it.
I tried to be chill.
I'm not that person*.
So we are painting it, painting everything!...and soon. I set out for Benjamin Moore yesterday afternoon dragging my two boys in the wagon (one fell asleep, the other took truck photos). I bought some sample pots. Put the colours up, watched them dry and we had a clear winner.
Benjamin Moore River Gorge Grey.
I painted several large areas to test it (you can see them above). It is darker than what we had. I don't dare go darker than this, because the windows will start to look wrong.
*It's too white, too yellow, too pink, and just not working...if the entire addition was all the same colour, I could deal, but because only the top is off, it just looks wrong.
