Shed Colours - David Cameron has nicked my idea!

We have a couple of elderly, but robust, DIY store sheds that need a repaint. They coped with navy staining for a few years and I think they are currently "Wild thyme" (Cuprinol or Ronseal). The neighbours all seem to have followed suit over the years. I'm getting bored with the colour and thought maybe a greige (needs to work with some natural stone and redbrick garden walls) would make a change (maybe a contrasting the window ledge and frame). I was all set to go with our vast stock of tester pots and then Mr C gets a shepherd's hut in F&B Mouse's Back.

I'm going to look like a copycat, aren't I!

Sorry, not helpful. What about a lighter greige? goo.gl/images/3u3Mjr

I was once in a traffic jam on the A1 (well, in March) and a guy in a Porsche Boxter was behind me who was the spitting image of David Cameron. misses the point of the thread

To be fair whatever you may think of David Cameron politics he does seem a decent chap and he and Sam Cam have great taste so I wouldn't hesitate to copy them. What about Dove Tale , slightly lighter.

Always knew he was a right bastard.

Just looked at Dove Tail (a tester pot I don't possess). It looks quite lilacy on my laptop (I'll have to see what it looks like when there's no sun). We've had Elephant's Breath in our drawing room for about 5 years. Maybe I should go that way.

I was gawping at gates this morning (I go past lots of walled gardens on school run) and some of the greys just look as if people got bored whilst doing a dark undercoat.

Apologies to Mrs C if she is a Mumsnetter blush
