Guess what! The porch is not pink anymore! Three coats of paint later all the pink is now white to match the rest of the house. I did decide to do the trim in a contrasting color to draw some attention to the windows. It’s a Behr color called Paramount. Its pretty much charcoal grey.

In the future I still plan on removing all the aluminum siding and painting the wooden clapboards.
