Screen Porch: Paint Problems

UGH.  That's pretty much all I can say right now.  We were sooooo close to having this whole porch renovation done this week but now I think that's in jeopardy.  I'm still holding out hope that it will be done in time for Alex's birthday party on the 20th but even that seems like a big hope.  (for the full play by play, click here).

So what's the hold up? Paint of all things!!  Totally not our contractor's fault. I had the original paint can from when we renovated 2.5 years ago.  The painters bought some more based on the formula and they started putting it on the porch and it didn't match the existing trim!  Huh???  I could imagine this happening if the paint was 5 years old but it's not even 3 years old. The color is really off and not even something I can live with in the short term because it's so obvious.

Here you go...

So the painting stopped which means the gutters are held up and the last of the woodworking and the screens...

I had forgotten how the details at the end are all so dependent on each other so one hold up, puts everything behind.  

Still looking forward to painting our porch.
