but do y'all remember my crappy brown entry door? The oh so fine 1960's/ 1970's Goldilocks Door? This window is too tall, this window is too short and this window is just right...
Well now it is Rustoleum's Royal Blue. This wasn't my first choice in color but I had this on hand from an old project so I say use what you have
Making some progress...
Before I began, I cleaned the door, sanded, tacked it off and wiped it down with IPA. I didn't use a primer because Rustoleum enamel is a highly pigmented paint. I am thinking that may have been a mistake not to prime first.
4 coats later
I think it needs another 1 to 2 coats
A vast improvement at no cost to me since I already had all of my supplies!
Up next... a new door knob--maybe something like this in antique pewter?
The hubbs is gonna power wash the house just to clean up the accumulation of grime.
I found some shutters that I like (simple flat panel) painted in the Royal Blue, of course
Right now my house looks a little too much like White Castle with the blue and white but I have a vision...
I am in love with this color scheme--Butter cream yellow, bright white trim and an accent of royal blue. It looks so happy!
but I also like this color palette because it is more subdued.
