Color change #2

About 4 years ago we installed this door.
It has taken me that long to decide:

  1. That I don't like the "au natural" fake oak finish.
  2. If I should paint the door.
  3. What color to paint the door, if I painted the door.
We have no excuse as to why we haven't painted the trim.

I was determined to decide on a color.  It had been long enough.  Then I came across this color combination on Pinterest:

And then I saw this door.  My heart began to sing ...

We bought the paint.  And waited.  And waited. And waited.
For the humid, hot days to end.
Sunday was our big break.  Mr. D took the door off the hinges --

and went to work painting the door in the dry, cool basement.  So the paint would dry faster.

He put a coat of primer on the door first.

By the end of the day on Sunday we they were re-hanging the door.

I could hardly contain my excitement ...

Can I just say that I 
my front door?

MAJOR improvement!!

Door Color:

We painted the shutters:
