Shut the Front Door!

So part of the exterior transformation, we had to decide on a new front door.  The original front door was in good shape but sometimes ugly "trumps" everything....right?  I thought about just repainting it for now but the window in it, I feel, screamed 1979.   Plus it had this weird deadbolt on it that was placed half way up from the top of the door.  I think the previous owners were giants!

We added some really cool modern house numbers that
I found here.

The paint color I chose was Chelsea Gray by Benjamin Moore in a satin finish. Our front door is south facing and gets a beating from the some every summer.  This shade of grade has kept it's gorgeous color all year.   I know Sherwin Williams has a "Chelsea Gray", but it is not the same.  It's more of a blue gray.

BEFORE...you can't see in this picture but that is a lovely maroon color gracing the door.
