Weathering painted exterior siding
We are in the process of buying this amazing house in the woods that has T111 exterior siding painted the unfortunate color of avocado green. We want to repaint the house a reddish wood color, but we want a weathered look so it blends in with the wooded forests around us.
We don't need to strip the siding--it's in good shape, and we don't have the time or money right now to go that road, so we want to repaint and then do whatever we can to make it look weathered and not so bright and shiny. :-)
I've looked online and while I can find MANY tutorials about weathering furniture and such, I can't find anything about repainting siding and then giving it the weathered look we want.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction? Is this even possible? Can I take the technique for weathering painted furniture and adapt it some way?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance...
