Just a door....


I worked on this door for a few days. It's bigger than what it looks. Trust me.

It was in need of some fixin'up'in' if I may. As you can see here. I called it the black hole because from the road that's what it looked like to me. Inviting...not!
{see the foyer..see the color...I took a detour...no longer Tobacco Road. I started getting tired of the gold and I'm heading down a brighter road now. Post will follow}

So I brought myself and my Sherwin Williams friend to WalMart and proceded with much caution. Im not one to fall in love with my color choices. Let's just say I know the paint man on a personal level. I bet he wants to hide when he sees me coming. Poor fella! Anyway the door is painted "Hardware SW6172" and the stucco is "Modern White 6169".



One of my two kitchen windows. Do I love this color? I think so. Give me a few days and I will get back to ya. It will take me some getting use to because its so open and bright now. I do like that its a mix of brown and green and is easy on the eye. You know I never want to be one of those neighbors that thinks they need to stand out from the crowd. I'm OK with just blending right in. So far so good on my makeover plan. I feel as though I'm in a new house without having to break the bank.

  6. Gorgeous classic colors for your front entry! I love black doors, but this lighter color really does open up your house. I'm in the middle of painting our interior right now, so I can understand your color choice dilemma. I help others better than I help myself- isn't that always the case? Anxiously awaiting the debut of your new foyer color.... Sue.

  14. It looks beautiful. Now I need to know - are your shutters wood or the plastic kind? Ours are that plastic-y stuff & hubby thinks we need to do something special to paint them. I say just slap some paint on there and call it done.
    Any tips?

  25. Looks great! That color is beautiful. We repainted the door and shutters a year ago...Ours was previously red and our house is red brick, it just wasn't all that lovely. So we did a green shade. So much better now!

  36. LOVIN' the black door. We bought an old historic home last year and have been working on the inside, but soon I hope to paint the front door and shutter black.

    Great job!
