New Look for a 150-Year-Old Door

In the 15 years we have lived in / restored our 1856 home, this is only the second time the front door has seen a new color. I'm thinking it may be seeing a third color very soon. The house is covered in gray stucco, and has sort of a French feel, so I was going for French blue. I'm not really feelin' it. Hmmm, I wonder how soon my son will be coming home again.
Probably not any time soon if he suspects
he'll be put to work again :).

I love the door painted blue. Blue doors are supposed to keep the evil spirits away. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I like yours too.
