This time, it’s a little different. I’m painting our front door which is visible to everybody on the outside. I want it to stand out but I don’t want it to be an eyes sore for neighbors (yes, I care about their feelings too). The outside of our house is a rich brown color and I want to go BOLD with a much cooler contrasting color. Am I pulling out colors out of our stone? Noooo. Am I going against all the laws of decorating which this choice? Yessssss. But I want our door to make a statement. Since we’ll never be painting our vinyl siding on the house, the door is my only hope for any change (color-wise) that I’ll be making. If we hate it, we can always change it.
Right now our shutters are a maroon-ish color and I’m not a fan. They look fine, but when the door is painted, they will not, so those will be changed as well. We’re going to replace them since we need only 4, but for now they may actually be painted for a quick temporary fix.
Here’s what our door looks like today….
The next 2 days look nice so hoping to actually get some painting while it’s still warm and sunshiny!
