Last week I shared our new front porch lantern light. Not only did it change the entire front porch, but the “vibe” of the porch changed as well. At first, with the palladian blue door and the satin nickel caged light, our entry way looked fun and energetic. And when I first painted the door, it matched the house since we had several rooms painted in the same shades of blue. But slowly, we’ve been changing the interior of our home and I’ve been eliminating the blues room by room. While we still have a few rooms with the blues, the majority of the house has changed. Hence, the blue front door didn’t really fit our true style and had to go.
So, one rare and warm day early this spring, I grabbed my paint brush and roller and went to town. I used the same paint as our shed makeover, Hazy Skies by Benjamin Moore. It’s such a chameleon color. At times it looks gray/ green, other times it’s tan/ green and occasionally it’s just really tan/ creamy. And it happens to look perfect with white trim and our black rock.
It’s funny, because Anthony never really said how much he disliked the previous color until I painted over it. Then, he made up for lost time. Turns out he really didn’t like that color. Like really, really.
I chuckle every time I think about it. When we first moved in, not only was the front door that color, but so was our laundry room (basically), office, pantry, and master bathroom. He must have really been going crazy! Now that I know how much he dislikes the color, I’m working on painting over the remaining rooms. 😀
Not only did I repaint the door, but we replaced our door knob/ handle set too. The first set broke, so we really didn’t have a choice in the matter. The oil rubbed bronze hardware just sets everything off…
So, we’ve gone from Palladian Blue…
To Hazy Skies…
The power of paint, it’s a beautiful thing. And so is having a front door that fits our style. 😀
