This was my door for years. For the past year I have wanted to change the color of my front door. I had grown tired of the red and the shock factor and wanted something a bit more earthy and warm. I often make most of my decisions with Christmas always in the back of my mind. And although I pondered about black for a bit since my side door is painted black (Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black, the best black ever) I wanted to still have a door that demanded some attention. Since my shutters are black I thought the door would get lost. So I remembered my blog friend Trina who has a lovely green door. I got the color and went to sherwin williams and picked out three colors and taped the swatches on my door to see in the sunlight. Arugula, Courtyard and Evergreens. After looking at all three I decided that Evergreens was the best pick. It was also Trina's color.
Here is a pic of Trina's door.
I love how it still pops against the white. I have an all white house too and loved the contrast.
I tried to take photos without the glare of my storm door but it was a bit impossible.
Here you can see the richness in the color. The door was still wet when I took this photo.
I am very pleased with the changes. I hope my husband will love them too, he's away and I always do a project when he's gone. Hope he loves it!
