Yesterday I picked up a 5 gallon bucket of Clark and Kensington exterior paint in the Benjamin Moore color “Sandy Hook Gray”.
I couldn’t wait to see how it would look on the shingles so I ladled about a gallon in a smaller bucket, picked up a paintbrush, and headed out onto the master bedroom porch.
Much of the rest of the house will need to be power-washed before painting but the porch area is very clean. As with the rest of the house, old and new shingles are mixed on the same wall so everything had to be painted.
We’ll probably use a paint sprayer on a some of the larger walls after they have been cleaned.
Sandy Hook Gray is certainly a greige tone. When I first opened the bucket it looked pale beige, almost cream.
It painted onto the wall a pale putty color but as it dried the color darkened and the beigeness became greyer.
It looks great with the new roof.
I can’t wait to see it on the other porches that have bluestone decks.
Are you surprised by the chameleon-like characteristic of paint?
