One right colour

Resene PaintsOriginally a three bedroom brick home, two extra room have been added, each in different materials and painted in several different colours. Karen and Keith decided their place was starting to look a bit like a patchwork quilt!

After much thought and mental anguish, they decided it would look much better being all one colour, as that way the additions would not seem so obvious. With the help of six Resene testpots they eventually decided on the colour Resene Tuna, chosen because it contrasts well with the silver joinery and the green of their garden foliage, as well as making the different building materials blend evenly together.

The complete painting job from prep to completion took a week. And now the work is done they can sit back and enjoy!
