Before and After

Last month, I posted photos of my home and asked for opinions on what red to paint my front door (previous post). After everyone weighed in and after careful consideration, I decided against all of the reds that I had up and we went with a really deep brownish red called "Miso" from the Martha Stewart collection (I love Martha).

Well....unfortunately, the so called "brownish red", wasn't exactly red in real life, but more of a deep purple. Fortunately, I love the color and I think it actually looks great with our red brick. Tell me what you think...



The pictures don't quite do it justice. I promise you, it is purple. My husband thinks that I did it on purpose because purple is my favorite color. I assured him that I did not.

For better or for worse, the for sale sign is in front of our home. We are hoping that it sells quickly. Send me your good home selling vibes. We could really use them right now.

Have a Happy Day!


  1. I think its great. In the pic it looks dark brown. But I think a front door is the perfect place to add a little punch to the outside of your house. Not too big, not too small. And much easier to repaint than shudders or something of that sort.

  2. It looks great...hope your house sells quickly for you! I love how easy it is to paint shutters too.

  3. I like it very much! Best of luck with the sale!

  4. I really like it! Things have a way of working out, don't they ;D

  5. Those few changes make a big difference. Good luck!

  6. It looks like a deep maroon. It looks great! Good luck with selling your place

  7. your home is lovely! hoping you get a quick sale :o)

  8. I like it! I hope you sell your house quickly! Good luck :)

  9. It looks great! The shutters really add a lot, too. You've made me want to paint my front door! Maybe I'll have a poll now about what color to paint it. :-)

  10. I think it looks fantastic!
    I call those "happy accidents." :)
