= I have an old home with bottle dash stucco. I'm thinking of doing this concept but would love some feedback before I paint this beast. I have already painted the brick and landscaped. I'm also trying to keep the cost low. TIA =

I’m sad you painted the brick. Nothing but trouble and upkeep now. Bricks need to breathe and painting them causes all sorts of water evaporation problems. Then it peels and looks awful. That being said… I would powerwash the stucco and see what the actual color is and how it brightens up. Stucco has many nooks and crannies that collect pollen and dust. The house color is probably much lighter than it looks
