Dh did this last year. We remodled our porch and reused most of our old siding but needed a bit more. We couldn't match our color (yellow) & ended up with white. I'll ask him more about it when he gets home tonight and get back to you. :)

Are you thinking of painting your whole house Misty?

Talked to Dh and here's what he had to say... We have vinyl siding that has a texture to it like wood grain. All he did was use outdoor house paint the color of our house. Only prep he did was to make sure siding was clean & dry.
If you have a smooth surface you may have to rough it up first.
He suggests(especially on a big project) going to a paint store & picking their brains for info.
So far what he did has worked for us, no flaking or anything. You can't even tell there was a differant color there. Don't hesitate to go to the paint store, they are a fountain of info!:) Have fun, can't wait to see how everything turns out.!
