Ooooh, I’m so excited about today’s post! Have you guessed what color we’ve painted the front door?!?
Andy Lane (AJ Lane Painting) and his crew have been hard at work on our home. They painted all the trim and the front door.
You may remember that I shared with you a couple of fun front doors a few weeks ago:
Many of you know me so well….
It had to be blue….
After careful consideration and a few trips to Hingham Lumber to chat with my friends, Katharine and Dianne. I decided on Benjamin Moore Buxton Blue. It is part of Benjamin Moore’s historic line. I love fun, bright colors, but for our 1927 home I wanted something classic and period. Living by the sea, I wanted the hint of the ocean.
What do you think? Isn’t it a dreamy blue? You know what? It is so me! I had to pull the screen back so you could see the full color. It is painted in a high gloss and I simply love it.
I didn’t just stop at the door though. I also painted the shutters!
They were originally black plastic and I didn’t think they could be painted, but they can. Andy and his crew did such a wonderful job.
We went from a pale yellow door and black shutters to happy Buxton Blue. Whenever I look at the color, I can’t help but smile.
Thought you might want a side by side of the before & after:
