Takin’ it Outside: Part 2

Aaron and I decided to paint the house. So I made this mockup of what our house would look like with the wood paneling painted gray and the white shutters switched out for black ones.

This is what we started with. Things were looking shabby.

So we scraped and sanded. Then it rained for a week.

When the rain stopped, we primed. Then it rained for another week. And when the rain stopped this time:

We painted! We chose Summit Gray by Sherwin Williams. We wanted a gray that didn’t have many blue undertones, since it would going with our dark red brick. It turned out to be the perfect color. It doesn’t feel cold at all.

I love the way it turned out. It’s warm and welcoming and looks great with the yellow front door! We’re not quite finished though. We’ve primed the white trip around the doors and windows and across the top, but we haven’t painted it yet. I think when I paint it, I’ll also give the metal edging of the storm door a coat of white paint too. You can do that, right? Have any of you ever painted a storm door?

    This looks great! Gotta love the grey with a color pop combination! (Not sure if my previous comment was posted…so if this is repetitive, so be it 😉

    Looks great!
    What color did you use for the front door?

    My house is a similar color and I found you on a search for yellow doors. 🙂

    Thanks!
