Fall the season of change

This is the NEW color of my front door! I spent all of Labor Day weekend painting, maybe because I did it three times....... This is the old color, it has been this color for over 10 years...time for a change.

I started with classic burgundy, but that was just too red for my home and besides I knew just what color I wanted, I did not have a name for it.

So I put cottage red on it after the last photo, not a noticable difference, so early Monday morning I was back to the paint store. Of course my usual store was not open on Monday so I was off to Home Depot.....poor me, but I had the most helpful salesperson, I showed him pictures and he came up with this color. Devine Wine its called! DEVINE it is. Just what I wanted. So when I finished I had a glass of wine, sat back and admired my new color. Now I have five doors more to go.
