Front Door Color!

Our siding is going up, + the good news is that I love it!

Here’s the finished 2nd story, out back:

SO.  The bad news?

Well, it’s not that bad — but now, in comparison,

the rest of our project looks even worse.

The humanity!

Take the original wooden storm doors.

Please.

I’ve decided to paint them a pale blue,

which will look great with all the white + pale gray.

I also want them to ‘play nicely’ with the blue of our garden shed,

as it’s visible from the front of the house.

Here ’tis, as of yesterday,

after we did a little landscaping to boost my morale:

We painted the shed last summer, using Benjamin Moore’s Blue Spruce.

To choose a complementary pale blue on our front doors,

I opted to consult the same color chart that the Blue Spruce was on:

2nd from top on the left

Blue Spruce is 2nd from top, on the left

I liked Santorini Blue (3 shades down from Blue Spruce):

 blue -- santorini

Done!

Front doors color, handled!

Now let’s have a look-see at some blue doors I spied on Pinterest.

These beauties reaffirmed my choice of a pale blue door!
