Eagle Eye painted this 1926 Capitol Hill Brick home in 2008 – early in the season to avoid the bees attracted to all the natural foliage. One of the first things we needed to do was remove the ivy tentacles from the wood trim, then we were ready to scrape and sand the wood to prepare it for painting.
The homeowners chose a bold Tricorn Black to highlight their trim, creating a dramatic, timeless look. The trim was painted in Sherwin Williams Super Paint satin, and the front door was Super Paint gloss. Sherwin Williams SW 6258 Tricorn Black is the truest black available – a wonderful, classic choice.
