Picking a colour for our front door ... July 10 2011, 0 Comments

Ever since we moved in last year I have been contemplating what colour our front door should be.  Initially I was thinking of a brick red or burgundy tone, I've always wanted a red door.
I thought we could match the color of these chairs I found on Kijiji last year. I tend to like a consistent color pallet throughout a home, our gas stove is burgundy so we do have a couple of hints of this color inside the house.  I noticed the paint is starting to chip on these chairs so I'm not opposed to painting them to match a new front door colour.  Last week I was inspired by Brittany (aka Pretty Handy Girl) and her post on paint and color    I love so many of the door colors in the post.  I decided to consult with Brittany and get her input on our front door, I did limit Brittany by asking her to pick an Annie Sloan Paint Color, I really want to paint the chairs out using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint so why not use it on the door too!  Following are some of her recommendations, I'd love your input on which one you like.

I look forward to hearing your input, and click here for your own color consultation from Brittany.  Now if I could only get her to come here and build me something <grin>.
