Going darker

2 coats of paint in Resene Trojan have transformed this homeDiane and Robert have transformed the exterior of their B&B with two coats of Resene paint.

Diane had always wanted to update the look of their 1929 bungalow but they had always thought that the darker colours were a no-no with an older weatherboard home. Then she discovered the Resene CoolColour™ formulas.

When she announced that she had found the perfect paint Resene Sonyx 101 CoolColour in Resene Trojan and that the house was going to change colour, Robert, like a good Southern bloke, said ‘OK if that’s what you want, off you go, I’ll hold the ladder!’

Diane got out the paintbrushes and starting painting.
