The coop is now about 90% finished and is functional but ugly. It needs paint badly, as it is mostly clad in plywood scrap that has been out in the sun for too long. I was at Le Home Depot yesterday trying to pick out a color, but MY GOSH it was color overload and I just couldn't pick! I want it to be obnoxiously bright and cheery, but yellow is out because that is the planned color for the backyard furniture (yes, Stephen, the ones we retrieved together - at least the couch is sanded!).
There was an awesome fucshia-purple, a peacock blue, a fiery lava orange, a very caribbean coral, and of course bright grass green. All of which would be lovely and make my white-trash side yard look a little better taken care of. But which one? The coop has a white roof and the most visible side of it is 4' tall by 8' wide. The paint will be matte, because matte claims to "hide surface imperfections" and boy is it imperfect. What color would you paint YOUR chicken coop?
