Actually, since {nguvmoH} means “make tinted” I wouldn’t restrict it to painting, either. I could also understand this as you releasing some kind of gas or particulate outside of the house to make the air colored.

Didn’t something like this come up recently? About whether there’s a general way to say the exterior surface of an object? I don’t recall there being a consensus on that.
