The Cross House
Well, today I painted one downspout…green (the one in the middle of the above picture).
How does it look?
Like why-did-I-spend-so-much-time-even-pondering-this-issue perfect.
(NOTE: The downspout in question is short because it is a weird diameter and I have been unable to find the bit more required to bring it down to the ground.)
When I purchased the house all the downspouts were long gone, and their absence created incalculable damage. Sigh. So, my great happiness about getting downspouts installed has been my focus these past three years, their color being a non-issue.
Until now. The installation happiness has now waned, and aesthetics has crept to the forefront of concern: why are these ugly gray pipes all over the place?
