Once upon a time there was a little flame burning inside me that made me really want to paint our front door. Then our bestest friends Dan and Lauren painted theirs and it looked so awesome and so cheery and it fanned that flame into a roaring fire. Except Anthony kept sprinkling drops of water on that fire because “There are too many other things we need to do first”, and “Eh, I don’t know”. He was right. There were a ton of things we had on our mile long to-do list that were way more important than our front door, which was navy by the way. Not a bad color at all. In fact, when we first bought this house I adored it with the green siding. But then there were brighter, cheerier grasses on the other side that I was drawn to too (not to mention that the navy paint job was bubbling in a few areas). So, when Anthony gave the go-ahead (or did I just make that up), I went for it. I’m not quite finished with it yet…what I thought would be one or two coats is nearing five…so I’ll just share the thought process on choosing a color today in hopes that the door will be finito before the end of the week.
Here’s what it looked like before:
[Picture quality: Sharp as a dull tack.]
And then I had a little fun in Pixlr making a few (very bad, I know) mock-ups of a few colors I had in mind. Which one do you think looks best?
A subtle charcoal gray?
Or cheery yellow?
Which one do you think we chose? I’ll give you zero hints and tell you it’s the color I’ve been wanting to paint the door since the idea popped into my head. I had to be sure and test out a few other color choices but this one hit the jackpot…and the front door last weekend. Stay tuned.
P.S. Ten points for a correct guess. :)
