Anyone wanna see pics of our new exterior paint color?

We've been in this house for a year and a half, slowly working our way through updated. It was built in 1980 and really embraced the decade in a bad way!!! Anyway, we've been wanting to paint since we moved in, and it finally got done. I'm not sure whose brilliant idea it was to paint it red with red trim (who does that?!), but this is what it looked like before. The white you see is because we had to replace a bunch of cedar siding before they painted, and the prep work is going on in the picture, so some pieces are sanded, but you get the idea.

Before...{{!gwi}}{{!gwi}}

Now, for the after, I thought this would be a dark grey/green. It turned out waaaay lighter than I expected, but I like it. It is definitely an improvement over the red on red, imo. {{!gwi}}{{!gwi}}
