How to create a great front door: A Different Kind of Painting, September 2014

The old front door bothered me before we purchased the house last year; it was sun-faded brown, drafty and I couldn’t wait to replace it. The new door was selected and the installers put it in. After  several hours of research on color combinations, glossy versus matte, and DIY youtube videos on faux-finishes, I went to the paint store.

I love color and I love to paint. After a few days, I got the result I wanted.  Now, not only does the color turquoise appear in my paintings, it welcomes us home on our front door.
