New-ish Front Door Color

Hey Ya’ll,

I’m sitting here on the couch next to Maverick, who is technically not allowed on the couch, but hey, that’s what slipcovers are for. Just finished my coffee and a delicious piece of leftover Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie  from our Thanksgiving meal. Yum! I love the holidays, but not because of gifts we won’t remember this time next year (I’d just as soon do without gifts at Christmas-it takes away from the true meaning of Christmas and Thanksgiving too for all the Black Friday shoppers). But, I love the holidays because I get to spend time with my family, and next year one third of our little family won’t be missing out (as long as the Air Force doesn’t change that).

But anyway, I wanted to share with ya’ll my pretty new front door color. It was new a few months ago, when I painted it… I am just now getting around to sharing. Insert list of commonly used excuses here and save me the effort. Ha!

So, prior to my painting, our front door was plain brown, like everyone else’s in this neighborhood, yuck! I should really start building houses…I have excellent taste, in my humble opinion. 🙂

Here it is blah-brown:

I painted it a dark gray first, but then noticed that it wasn’t enough of a contrast from the brown. Then I tried some samples.

Here are a few I tried, they were all too neutral for what I was wanting. So I hopped on Pinterest and searched for the perfect blue. I ended up going with Benjamin Moore’s Gentleman’s Gray-it is actually blue.

I really love it! And now our front door doesn’t look like every other house in the neighborhood. Yay!

Now I can focus on the garage lights and the front porch light-changing them out for something more my style. I’m considering these from Lowe’s, but alas they are never on sale. Which doesn’t really work for my new found frugalness. 🙂

What is your favorite front door color?
