The Tattered Pew

Choosing an exterior paint color can be a bit overwhelming. Check out how we chose our color and ended up going dark with Hale Navy! 

Here are a Few Simple Tips to Get You Started!

See It In Person!


 Drive around neighborhoods and look at paint colors that you are drawn to. . If you find one you love and it's safe, ask your neighbors for the exact colors they used.

Visit the Paint Store


Go in to the paint store and ask for help! While there grab a few cards and actual paint samples to try out. I visited Sherwin Williams and they were so helpful!

Paint Swatches


Paint swatches on different sides of your house. View colors in the morning, afternoon and evening. Label them so you don't forget which swatch belongs to which paint color.

Don't Forget the Trim!


The main color of your house is important but so is the trim. Make sure to paint it next to the colors you are thinking about!
