1) Trim the trees above our garage
2) Refinish the deck (paint or stain)
Trimming the trees was easy, but the thing about the deck is that we plan on replacing it next year! Not that my city cares about this. Anyway, for a quick, inexpensive fix, we decided to paint the deck with "Restore" paint. A couple of my neighbors with the same violations have already done this, and let me tell you it doesn't look too bad at all! In fact, I'm getting really excited painting ours!
The problem is - what color should I choose?
Here is a picture of the house and the only current picture I have of the deck (or a corner of the deck, I should say!)
(I should metion I hate the color of the deck currently. It is practically red!)
And here are the paint color options:
Cape Cod Gray
Obviously I'm leaning towards something more in the gray family. I like the idea of contrasting a little bit with the house. Originally I thought I wanted a brown, but I just hate the look of brown paint, so I'm going this route. Or do you like the fieldstone? Let me know your thoughts! I hope to buy the paint after work today and start painting tomorrow.. Our 30 days is rapidy running out!
