Congratulations on the purchase of your new home, but please be advised that you must get approval if you wish to make any changes to the exterior appearance of your home. You are required to use Sherwin Williams paint and the 38 different color schemes that are available to you are listed in the set of documents that you got at your closing. In addition to these 38 colors, you may also paint your house with either of Valspar’s new colors which did not make it into your closing documentation as of yet. The newly accepted colors are “possibility” and “foggy mirror”, but any color that you select must be approved by the Master Board first. We have a rule that states no two houses next to each other can be painted the same color, so whatever color you choose, that must be approved by the paint review committee, before any work is started. We also don’t like houses that are next to each other to look similar to each other, as we feel this makes the community more aesthetically pleasing, but since this is a judgement call with beauty being in the eye of the beholder, this guideline is harder for us to enforce and we hope that you will use your best judgement.
This new Possibility paint is a Latex base that provides extra protection from cracking, peeling and blistering over time and offers a Satin sheen with an elegant, soft look that could be ideal for you, but the paint swatches in the brochure could vary slightly from the result you get when your paint dries. If you decide to go with the Foggy Mirror paint, you should know that this may make your house completely invisible in case we get a dense fog, so we suggest that you remain at home if that happens, because you might not be able to get back in if you leave.
Written for Paula’s Paint Chip Friday challenge #5 where today we are supposed to derive inspiration from Valspar’s “possibility” and/or “foggy mirror”.
