Improving our Home // Front Entrance

Posted by on January 23, 2014

I’ve got the itch to change a few things around the house. This is a blessing and a curse. Now that I read 1001 blogs and read every design digital/traditional magazines known to man kind, I have the hardest time deciding what to change, and also how to afford it.
Fast forward to the fact that our lovely home is almost eighty years old, and our front steps are in need of repair.

We are having to pick out some new brick, so we headed out to Pine Hall Brick Company‘s showroom.  Who knew there were so many choices??

I think we decided on this brick in a single basket weave design on the top of the landing.

While I am picking out brick I started to look at the front door.  It is black.

Black is great, but as I was reading this month’s House Beautiful I spotted the best color ever for a front door. Benjamin Moore’s Black Forest Green.  Below is the online article:



I also want a new storm door ours is metal and is hard to open sometimes
I haven’t figured out which storm door I want yet?  Which of the ones do you like?

We are going to have to paint all the surrounding wood as well… a few broken bricks has become a bigger project than expected.  I think this is how every house project starts for us… a little thing becomes a full on project.  Let me know what you think, do you like the color?  My roof is a blackish/green and my shutters are black just for reference.   Thank you so much for reading.  This blog is such a gift!!

Dashing – xoxo
