Fire engine red trim!
My husband has an old house we have been updating for sale. He chose an exterior paint that is a very pale, creamy yellow, with white trim...and then wanted a deep cranberry for the trim accents and door. Problem is, the cranberry, after 6 coats, is still fire engine red. The house looks like McDonalds and I am just waiting for somebody to pull into the driveway and order a Big Mac w/fries.
What would happen if I added just a dab of green to the red paint? Is there any way I can darken it or should we just buy more paint? This is Sherwyn Williams, so it is good paint and the color swatch was cranberry but the actual paint is SO RED. And I am so tired of painting trim accents - 6 times, yikes!
