Last summer I got the crazy idea to paint my front door pink. Yep, PINK!!! My exterior is grey with white trim, and I just knew the pink would pop against it!! But I’m not the only one who lives here…so I ran it past the rest of the Crazy Caseys. They were *not* as excited as I was, but they were willing to let me try it. I get asked all the time how I talked my husband into it…let’s just say I married a good one!
Picking the Perfect Pink
I felt like Shelby from Steel Magnolias, searching for my perfect shades of Blush and Bashful. I scoured Pinterest and paint stores’ websites to get ideas. I finally went to the local Sherwin Williams and looked at every single pink available. I narrowed it down to my top three and bought little Color To Go sample containers.
I grabbed a white poster board and painted three large swatches, labeling each one. Then I took the poster outside and had one of my kids hold it up against the grey siding. I immediately ruled out Jovial as too orange, but I had a harder time choosing between Loveable and In The Pink. I finally decided I wanted to go a little lighter and brighter, so landed on Sherwin Williams Loveable!!! Even the name is amazing, right?
Pretty in Pink
As soon as the paint went up, I was in LOVE!!! But the greatest thing about this project is that if I had hated it, I could have just painted it back! Very low risk. We’re the only house with a pink door around here, and I love that it’s unexpected and fun!
