Last September, I debated colors for the exterior man door. It only took 11 months, but I finally decided and painted the door.
I’m a decider. Clearly.
I chose Behr Starless Night. Spoiler alert: I love it.
After installing the barn quilt, I thought a blue door was just the ticket. Gave the barn a little balance. I was afraid white would be too bright with the big garage door. Plus, it’s so dusty that it would get dirty. Black no longer made sense. So, navy it was. And Starless Night is a perfect navy blue, in my opinion.
Painting a door is pretty self-explanatory, right? It took two coats of paint (I used Behr Premium Plus Exterior Paint in a satin finish).
Another new update is the reclaimed brick entry. Ryan and my brother installed it from old paver bricks. (We have been holding onto these bricks for about four years. We discovered them buried in the yard at our current house.)
Sometimes, it’s the little changes that make a great big impact.
This barn has come a long way, baby.
What do you think of the color?
