Blue Lake Front Door

Hey, hey, hey. I have been slow with getting my projects completed, but I have finally finished my front door. I have always had white doors pb (pre blogs), but last year I painted the back door of our rental black and really liked the results, so I thought I would try something different in this house. I wanted something that would look good with my brick house and not look a black hole from the street. After searching Pinterest for color inspiration and painting different samples on my door, I finally decided on Blue Lake from Benjamin Moore.

I have to say that I am really loving it…so much so that I decided to paint the inside of the door the same color. I was just going to paint the inside white because i have a tiny entry with a newly purchased blue rug and I was afraid it would be too much blue, but I am going to leave it and see how my living/dining/entry comes together before I decide if I need to change it.

So here is the required before and after.Blue Lake Front Door | chatfieldcourt.comBlue Lake Front Door | chatfieldcourt.com

    LOVE this color. Looking forward to seeing how it looks on the inside too. We’ve been fighting over what color to paint ours- we’re planning to repaint the outside of the house a medium blue, and we can’t figure out what goes with that other than white…

      Hi Kelly. Thanks for visiting. I can’t seem to get a good picture from the inside as my lighting is terrible, still trying though. I want to do some kind of treatment on it too with molding or even some paint to make it look like molding. As for your door, you could do any color…black, golden yellow, a raisin color (BM Mountain Ridge), or even like a rusty red color. I’d love to see pictures once you paint it!
