Front Door Color Change

In the last post I showed you my Fall porch decor

and you may have noticed that my front door has changed colors.

In July I had asked readers for opinions on painting my door a different color and I got lots of nice suggestions. Well, it took me 3 months to finally make a ultimate decision on the color and to get it done. It was getting to be one of those things. That. Will. Never. End.

The color that won was .... a very dark brownish-black.

Here is what it looked like after 1 coat.


I asked my husband if he thought it needed a second coat? I just got "the look". You know the one, where he's not entirely sure I am kidding or not. Just have to rattle his chains!

The color is from Sherwin Williams and is called Weathervane.

I'm glad that I finally bit the bullet and made a decision. It's paint after all, if it looks hideous I can always repaint it!


  1. I LOVE the color, Pam! Looks great with the house color and with your fall decor, too!

  2. ~*It looks great Pam! :) Makes your entry more inviting and even cozier looking~* Rachel ;)~*

  3. I think you made a great choice!

  4. It is so much better. Well done. The plants and urns are so pretty. ♥O

  5. that is a brave undertaking. the colour looks great, pam.

  6. I love your black door. It looks wonderful. YOur porch is so pretty. Hugs, Marty

  7. Thank you, thank you, Pam. We have the same brick on our houses and I've been wringing my hands trying to figure out a color for our back door. Problem solved! I love the color you chose. Love it, love it. You'll find me at Sherwin Williams tomorrow. Yayyy!!

  8. Pam, great choice, it looks very nice, really stands out against the white trim and the lime sweet potato vines!

  9. um..I totally love the color..mine is red..but I am itching to change it to black..maybe next summer.;)

  10. Pam- It looks wonderful...and it's almost a deep, deep chocolate to me. It really pops out now and I think it looks wonderful. I love it~How about you? Are YOU feeling it? I also like the way it looks with your rockers..perfect choice. Hugs- Diana

  11. I painted the inside of my door black and my hubby was really worried about it. Now he loves it! Great job!
