Yellow Door at 173

A Blast of Color at 173!

Back in August 2011 the back porch remodel was completed.  One of my favorite touches was the yellow back door.  After seeing (and loving) the results...we decided that the front door just had to be yellow too!
So, a couple weeks ago the front stoop railings were painted.  Yeah, it "livened" up the front stoop a bit, but the truth is - that little project was merely preparation for this one!  Here's the front door after the stoop railings were painted:
And...without further ado...(cue drum roll please):

Just for fun I thought I'd add in the extreme ends of the project.  It's not a great shot (especially after cropping, etc), but here is the front door prior to August 2011:

And a close up:

And a wider shot of now!

Oh, and for the record, here's the paint for the door:

It's "Goldenrod" by Valspar. On the computer it looks awfully bright, but in real life it's a rich, creamy yellow. As I've noted before, I've used Baehr paint from Home Depot on a couple occasions and was less than thrilled. So this time I gave Valspar a try. I really did like the way it covered, it's going to (obviously) take some time to find out about its durability.

UPDATE:  Here's a look at the yellow front door as of September 2017:

The paint has held up excellently!  Five stars!
