Hey, neighbor, can I have your paint?
We will have the house painted this year, and I'm looking for a new color. Several houses in the neighborhood have the same brick as ours, and only one has a paint color that I like with it, but I don't know the owners. In another neighborhood, a similar house has a totally different color that I like, too. But I don't want to fiddle around with shades and tints, I want one of those two exact colors.
Now, some sources have suggested that one could knock on the door and say "hey neighbor, what's that paint ya got there?" Have you ever done that? Has anyone done that to you? Were the police involved?
