Why am I doing nothing but painting doors this week? I'm not really sure. I do know that it was 60 degrees here yesterday so I could open up the door and windows and paint while the little one napped. "That must mean he takes wonderfully long naps for you to get two coats on the door!" No he doesn't and yes I did slap a second coat on while the first one was still tacky. No worries though because it dried nice and smooth.
It took five greens to get the right green for our front door. I was having a seriously difficult time finding the right shade. I finally got a sample mixed up that I loved and I used the whole thing on the front door and that was that! I've been wanted to paint our back door green as well for months and yesterday was the perfect day. It was a use what you've got kinda situation so I mixed all four of the reject greens I had left with some white until I got a color I liked for the back door. It's brighter than the front which is nice.
Here is the softer green of the front door.
It is a bit brighter than this photo shows. Somewhere between the punchy green of the back door and a sage.
Don't you love a bright door?
