Shut The Front Door!
So I decided to take the plunge and paint our front door! We built this house about 4 years ago and the paint on the door was starting to show its age! Of course the two “guard” dogs and 3 kids didn’t help the situation either!
I really didn’t mind the black door, but I felt the need for some color! So I took my sample board of Duck Egg (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) to Benjamin Moore and had them color match it for me. I chose their Regal Select brand in Soft Gloss, it went on like a dream! They did such a great job color matching, the color was a dead on match from my sample!
I am over the moon thrilled with not only the door color but the combination of the copper and the blue!
I used Rustoleum’s Aged Copper spray to update the door hardware. I sprayed the knob and lock in place but removed the knocker and kick plate. The combination makes me smile every time I see it!
I think this was my Spring spruce up project… I still have my annuals to plant, but with this freakish weather I want to be sure that we are done with frost! After looking at this picture I also think I will need to change to color of my “S”, I liked it on the black but on the blue it just disappears… oh well, I’ll add that project to the “list”!
Have a great rest of the week… if you’re in the Southeast like me enjoy the warm weather!
Until next time!
