Yesterday I took on a super easy project that I had been putting off for multiple reasons. Andrew and I have been
fighting disagreeing about what color to paint our shutters because our brick color is such an odd color. Our brick is a super dark brown from far away, but up close has some red in it. I wanted to paint our shutters a darker cream, but Andrew has not been convinced that my vision is the best one yet. I digress…
I’ve hated our stark white front door since the day we moved in, but I wanted it to match or at least coordinate with our shutters, so since we haven’t decided on the shutters, it has stayed white. But yesterday, I had had enough and I decided to paint it.
We went to Lowe’s and purchased a lovely shade of blue for the front door. We used Valspar’s Duramx paint that also has a primer included. It’s a great paint type to use outdoors. We purchased a quart, which was PLENTY, but since that’s the smallest container that Lowe’s sells, that was our only choice. I also bought a special brush that is meant for corners, since our door has tons of details.
