Do you ever make a decision, knowing it isn’t the one you REALLY wanted to make…but you just settle?
Well, I did that. When we built our house and picked our front door, I KNEW I wanted it to be a beautiful aqua, but I went with black instead. The black was beautiful…but I could NEVER shake that feeling of wanting that pop of color, and I finally gave in and WENT WITH IT!
While we were on vacation, I had someone paint my front doors the most beautiful color EVER…and I can’t wait to show you. It totally screams BROOKE, and yes- Brandon is very happy with it too! Win Win!
The color is Sherwin Williams Tidewater, and we got it from the Sherwin Williams store. There is a difference in the quality from the actual Sherwin Williams store and the line of paint at Lowes, just FYI. I have learned that through professional painters through the years!
This is the exact can of paint.
It took her 2 full coats to cover the black, which was not as bad as I thought it may be…and it looks AMAZING!!!
The black hardware on the door shows up sooooo much better now against the Tidewater! You could barely even see the details on the black, but believe it or not- they were there all along!!!
I am absolutely in love with this makeover, and it is just another example of going with your first instinct. It is usually the right one!
Here is what it looks like from the inside!
