The purple door

A "Before" and "After" project. I've been wanting to paint our side garage door purple for some time now and yesterday I finally did it.


This was the door before ~ a light blueish green color.



And now after.....Purple!



I love it!


And I love looking out from the back porch and seeing that little splash of purple in the back yard.

That's a really shade of purple. I, too, am thinking about changing the color of my "front" door....but I haven't been able to settle on a color yet. Red.....green...white? Too many choices.

Oh I love this...isn't is amazing what one color accent will do. And from what I can see of your garden in this photo it looks very, very charming.

Oh! Yay for a purple door!
I would love to paint my front door the color your door used to be. :) In my neighborhood of white doors, even that much color seems going out on a limb. Your purple door seems perfect for the space.

That door makes me smile just looking at it! I adore it!! IF only my darling hubby were of a different mindset, oh I would love to splash color all around Ships Landing. For now, I will just have to gaze wistfully at your purple garage door. :)

I’m completely mesmerized! The way you accentuated your door with purple is magnificent. It blends perfectly with the surroundings, and most especially with your plants. The aura it gives to your home is so peaceful.
