Default Wood protection

I have some wood outside my house. I hope to be able to repaint it soon but since it is getting towards winter, it may have to wait.

I am not fond of the color and it doesn't go well with the surroundings. Is there something inexpensive I can use to simply cover the wood that won't mess it up till I get it repainted.

Not sure what you mean as far as covering it. A tarp if its unprotected. When you go to paint it just remember - preparation is key. Scrape all loose paint, prime bare wood and then paint.
