UncategorizedOur Front Door April 24, 2012As y’all saw in the picture yesterday of our new family, we also have a new front door! I’m terrible at taking before pictures. I’ve been searching and searching and cannot find a picture of our old door to post, though I know I’ve posted it before. It was flat and black with a half circle window at the top. Someone found this door in a dumpster and gave it to us for free because they know we love doing house projects. This is exactly what I wanted and can’t believe we got it for free. You’ll notice there is still paint on the windows. We haven’t razored it off yet because the color still isn’t right. I know we’re going to be painting again and am waiting to do it all at once. The color is pretty different in person. It’s more of a flat light blue, with no green. I’m hoping for more of a mint (actually more like it appears in the picture)! I went to Lowe’s one day four times trying to get the right shade. I painted it twice and it still looked the same color, though the paint in the cans looked totally different. Go figure. Speaking of, does anyone know of a really good mint or blue/green? We really, don’t like the color of our brick and since painting the brick isn’t in the plan or budget just yet, a bright front door is just what this needed I think. It’s such a nice change, though, however long it takes to get the color right. We planted a lot of petunias hoping to brighten up this entry for spring. Overall, this entry is feeling much, much better. There’s still a lot I’d like to do out here, but this is so much better. It’s amazing what just a little color and some flowers can do!
