Newly Plum Front Door!

We have a new front door color!  Behr Spiced Plum.  It only took me ages to decide for sure what color to use, but I'm quite happy with the result.  In shade, it looks a bit more purple, and in the sun, a bit more magenta, but I like it both ways.  Here it is in shade tonight...I'll try to get pictures in sunlight tomorrow.

You can see I also painted the flower box scrollwork today too.  Tomorrow I'm going to do the back door.  This picture below better shows how the door color coordinates with the new roof too.

By the way...find the hidden Spidey in the below picture...

You can see there have been other changes around here too...we had the maple tree removed from the front yard, since the roots were getting into the sewer.  But we hope to plant another smaller tree (probably Serviceberry) closer to the front corner of our property along with a new triangular flower bed over there.  I think it'll balance out the front yard better, since there's more room on one side of the sidewalk than the other.

In case it isn't blatantly obvious, the below picture is heavily photoshopped to show how we want things to end up looking...not how they are quite yet.


  1. First of all, I'm loving the look of your home. It is so adorable! I think the plum front doors are perfect. They contrast well with the walls and the color of the roof. Also, your front yard landscaping is just superb. Kudos to you guys for having such a beautiful home, and making it more so with your improvements. Thanks for sharing! Wishing you guys all the best!

  2. The color of the front door of your living space makes a tremendous statement about you and your lifestyle. Some prefer the traditional, the classy and some like the simple life and simple colors. The front door also plays a huge part in the design of the front yard or porch. Choose a fantastic color and enjoy!
