Front Door Update

It is complete! Well, almost....I still have a little touching up to do.

As a reminder, here is my inspiration photo. I searched online and decided on Cabana Green by Benjamin Moore. Turns out Home Depot can match Benjamin Moore paints if you know the name and/or number. So I ended up purchasing the paint at Home Depot.

Here is the Before...

Here is my door with some primer as well as two test colors (Cabana Green and Floradale Isle).

And here is the AFTER!

At first I wasn't too sure about the color but now I like it. We still hope to re-do the siding, get a new roof and a new 6 panel glass storm door but this will have to do for now. I may still get a window box or two.

Nothing too exciting on the menu this week. I am serving a couple of our favorites...Angela's Awesome Enchilada and Zucchini Wrapped Pork.


  1. The new color of your front door is very soothing to the eyes. Green is the color of nature and I must say that it fits perfectly the surroundings of your place. By the way, what type of roof did you install?

    1. Thanks Maricela. We didn't end up replacing the roof because it still has some life in it. I would love to at some point as well as the siding. It is definitely on the list of improvements. Thanks for reading.
