I do not know the exact shades, they were custom mixed to match what was existing.

Are there any good "how-to" videos on how to do this? - My wife and I live in a small home that has a woefully plain flat front face, and entrance. The house (and the front door) are perfectly situated for a portico, however. But I'm not great at carpentry. I can do some simple rough-in type work, but finished stuff like this is far beyond my skill level. I was hoping I could get a little bit of a tutorial, or some tips on how to accomplish a project like this, and get a finish that looks AT LEAST serviceable, and won't fall off the house. Any ideas?

Greg, I was the same way until a friend of mine and I bought an 1865 school house and worked every weekend for 4 years renovating it. http://www.crisparchitects.com/publications/hbweekend.html

I read a lot of fine home building magazines. Taunton press the publisher has a great web site.
Honestly, you learn by doing. We just always made our first attempts in the least visible part of the project.

Thanks for your interest! I unfortunately do not have the answer to that question, this project was some time ago and we do not keep records of that nature.

Thank you. It is light yellow, white and dark green. We mix samples, put them on the walls and decide on site.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Timeline of American House Styles
From the arrival of the first settlers to our own day, the American house has been heavily influenced by European models. Whether British and French in New England or Spanish in the South and Southwest, the initial settlers built what they knew and were familiar with. But, of course, they adapted the styles to their new locations and the materials at hand. For example, a house in New England would have had smaller and fewer windows as a response to the harsh winters and the unavailability of glass.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Clues to Finding the Right Color for Your House
Take seasonal changes in the landscape into consideration, such as green grass and leaves as well as blue sky in summer to blankets of white snow and gray sky in winter. Live in a snowy area? Consider a creamy off-white, something with a bit of yellow in it, in lieu of a stark white. The creamier color will give your home a strong presence and stature whether it's surrounded by the grays of winter, pastels of spring, greens of summer or oranges and browns of autumn.
