Yes, we’ve mixed painted parts with natural wood; the concept is that the wood (ipe decking and cedar sides) will gray out and blend in over time—and will last and last and last without maintenance; I was giddy the other day while shoveling off the steps that we were not going to have any problems with paint peeling off).
