Choosing colors for your decor projects can be a daunting task, which is why it’s a good idea to get some paint samples so you can test the color on a larger area at home.
According to Sherwin-Williams, “By sampling colors at home, you can be sure you’ve selected the right colors for your space. Color to Go samples make it easy. These small, Twist-n-Pour containers cover about 75 sq. ft., which helps you try colors to see exactly how they work with your lighting and decor. Color to Go helps you narrow in on the right color when you can’t decide between favorites.”
A neutral color for wainscot can also be used dramatically simply by changing the color of the wall above it.

Rooted in the idea of nature, the Sanctuary color collection focuses on the natural world.
Sanctuary Rooted in the idea of nature, the Sanctuary color collection by Sherwin-Williams focuses on the connection that the natural world has to nurturing wellness and calm. This palette is influenced by biophilia, nesting and Scandinavian design. The quietness of Pure White SW 7005 is a signal to take respite, slow down and embrace what’s truly important. The warm minimalism of Morris Room Grey SW 0037 is a reminder that less is more.
Having an attractive, well maintained property shows the community you are committed to quality and that you care about them by taking care of the way your neighborhood looks. An attractive paint job plays a major role in this aspect of your community outreach.
A quality paint job not only improves your church’s testimony in the community, it is also good stewardship because it protects the investment your church body has made on the property.
Although most of us recognize that the people (and not the building) are the church, in many ways the building represents the church body in the community. Having an attractive, well maintained property shows the community you are committed to quality and that you care about them by taking care of the way your neighborhood looks. An attractive paint job plays a major role in this aspect of your community outreach.
In addition to the appearance, properly applied paint also protects your building by providing a barrier against water and UV damage. Most exterior building materials were designed to have a protective covering of paint. Without up-to-date paint protection, these materials are susceptible to damaging water intrusion as well as to ultraviolet light damage. Both of these factors can greatly shorten the life expectancy of your church exterior.
In addition to damage to the exterior, water can get into the framing, insulation, sheetrock and carpet causing rot or mold issues. Paint really does protect.
As a church leader, you will be faced with decisions about how to proceed with getting the paint protection your property needs. Hopefully you will be able to navigate questions of body and trim color without too much trouble. But what about the actual labor to get the job done. Here’s why we think volunteers may not be the way to go for this task:
A quality paint job is just as much about preparing the surfaces as it is about applying the paint. Loose and peeling paint need to be removed, a job that requires a specific skill set not to mention that the debris can end up in flower beds, on sidewalks and on parking lots. Ever try to clean up paint flakes and old caulking?
Church buildings are bigger than you think. Reaching gables, bell towers, spires, crosses and cupolas can be difficult and dangerous especially without the proper equipment. How is your liability insurance?

Size matters when it comes to repainting because simply reaching the lofty heights of dormers and gable ends can be a real challenge. This is where Paint Doctor’s Painting comes in.
