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!

    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!!
