Lightbulb Need some help picking colors for a deck & fence project

Hi, new on here.. currently a single bachelor that has owned a house for the last few years, and my deck & fence is in desperate need of repair & repaint. I have someone coming out in a few days helping to get it repaired & getting a good price on Behr's DeckOver. Would anyone be so kind to help me pick out or suggest some colors on what I should do to the deck & fence?

Heres my current distressed deck & fence, looking for a nice color scheme, colors you recommend from would be very helpful!

Thanks for your time!! =)

Welcome to the forums!

IMO it isn't a good idea to use a deck over or restore type coating. While a thick coating like that will make for an immediate improvement, the odds are that it will peel sooner or later and then you have a lot of work trying to get it in shape for a fresh coating.

Because of the brick your grey roof and siding only limit your color choice a little. Given the age and condition of your deck and fence I'd recommend a solid stain. Most paint stores have software that will insert their colors into your pic. I don't know if a big box paint dept offers that service but you might be able find it online.
