A LITTLE while back I did a post on my NEW FRONT DOOR COLOR. Just a little touch of color…added to an otherwise simple country porch.
I used Benjamin Moore Exterior semi gloss and chose “MAJESTIC BLUE”,
which is a couple hits darker than the “BIRDS EGG” which I have on the Haint Blue Porch Ceiling. The trim is painted Benjamin Moore Linen White…. I got the miss-tint can for a whopping $2…Thats 2 bucks. The consensus was that the new color brightened up the front porch…but one commenter, who loved the new color, made a point of noticing my “hideous” screen door… and that word…”hideous”…while it would not have been my word of choice on someone’s blog…lit a fire under my butt to get rid of that ….
…well …hideous door!
This was a relatively easy fix. The old storm door was inside of its own metal frame so that had t be removed…old holes were caulked over and sanded and fresh paint was added.
How can it be that the simplest of makeovers can often times have the BIGGEST IMPACT. We have battled that door for almost 10 years. The dogs and the kids broke the plexiglass at least 3 times and – for the money we have spent on replacing the spring closure…I am certain we could have had a NEW DOOR CUSTOM MADE.
Oh well…lessons learned. I LOVE not having that nasty old door. and maybe someday I can replace it with an updated authentic farmhouse storm door…but for now…sweet Majestic Blue!
see you tomorrow..here is my question for you…do you have a storm door? Do you think they are hideous? are the old fashioned? I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this very pressing subject!!!
