We've been here in this house just over three years and I have changed the colour of the front door as many times.
I didn't 'plan' to do this, but every springtime I feel like a change.
So, yesterday I got some paints out and started mixing. I used Chalk Paint (Original from Annie Sloan) as a base.
I added some of the facade paint (see picture below), a squirt of magenta (the artist variety acrylic) and the result is shocking ! Himself wasn't too sure at first, because when it went on it looked proper bubblegum pink. It has toned down a bit with drying. It looks actually quite good with the colour of the stone and the painted extension.
Need some more embellishments, like more colour in the plant pots and a funky doormat.
The door colour was blue before and it looked colder than the photo below shows.
And, it was time for a change. Ha ha !
Before the blue, it was lavender, but it had bleached a lot during the year it was on the door (must have been from all the sun)
When we moved into the house, the front door was a bland (in my opinion) brown and I wasn't having any of that !
I don't think I can just slap another coat of paint on top next time. The door might not close again.
The window boxes have been filled and are looking goo-ood.
And I'll leave you with a last picture, of the Sweet Williams in all their glory.
Now, that's a colour and a half.
Have a great weekend !
