i want to paint my coops...

I have 3 coops and a barn. I most likely won't get them all done this year (am starting a project that I hope will work out really well, but more on that later!) I just can't decide on colours. I need help choosing. I like white with green trim, but that will show dirt too much. Red with white might be neat for the barn, but I am not sold on it. I kind of like the Mediterranean feel, seeing as my main breed are Euskals, so some kind of terra cotta and???  Help??

Terracotta with cream trim?  The inside of my tractors are "Tugboat" which is terracotta-y hides the chicken poo! :sick:  The outsides are navy blue with white trim, crisp and tidy.  I like the red and white too.  We will be deciding this when we get the new barns built when we build the house.  There was  a lot of whitewash in those Videos Lys posted.  maybe watch them again for inspiration!

You'll have to do before and after pics and can't you download a painting programs so you can paint over a photos with different chips  and see how it will look?

Love it- sounds nice! And that's a good idea-I think I bought software for decorating years ago- will have to dig it up :)
