After looking at 22,000 colors in the Pittsburgh Paint color samples, I narrowed it down to six colors. Three of the colors I have used in the past (Alpine Valley, Wythe Blue, and Bayou Teal) and the other three are new colors. So yesterday, I drove to B and B Paint, which is the best paint store in town, and I bought the sample quarts of the three new colors: Blue Starfish, Port Au Prince, and Bimini Blue.
After I put my girls to bed last night, I put on a sample of each color. I think a couple of them I will have to do a second coat to get the “real” color. Who knew there were so many choices and variations in turquoise?
So, there are my 6 final choices for my front door color. The top picture is to show the color choices with the burgundy color of our shutters. As you may recall, I can not paint my shutters right now, so whatever color I choose has to correspond with the burgundy. That’s a toughy. I love all of the choices, but then looking at them next to the burgundy makes it a tough call for me. So far, the votes I have received have been mostly in favor of the bottom left. The Mr. is in favor of the bottom right. I am in favor of the two bottom ones mixed together. 🙂
