It’s time for a change, a change of color for my exterior doors. I’ve had the same color for 6 years now and it was getting sun faded and just needed a pick me up. I chose Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal and do think it is the perfect, neutral gray. I’m in hopes we have time to pressure wash the house and change the stain color still this summer and I’m planning on going with a light gray stain and the doors will go perfectly.
The color I already had on the door, Sherwin Williams Roycroft Bottle Green, is very similar to to the new color it just has the green undertone removed. I have picked several door colors but for some reason everyone thinks if you live in a log home you have to have green doors and a green roof.
Well I am always one of those people that go against the grain. The traditional hunters green just wouldn’t due for me. I figured since I don’t have rooms to paint I can change the door color whenever the mood strikes me.
I forgot how much I hate to paint, especially something tedious like doors. There’s lots of areas to cut in and that makes it time consuming. Originally the 9 light had a cream boarder, well that’s for the birds. It takes to much time and to much work so the door is a solid color this time around.
I like the color so much I may paint my green bar stools with it and look for some gray slipcovers. I know it’s a subtle change but it works for me.
