But then the cost of these door inserts made me go "ACK!"
When it came down to my beautiful granite and how badly I wanted it, I gave up my iron doors....and just thought I'd do something different later.
Well, behind my back EngineerHubby had my boss order these doors anyway and surprise me. They are stunning! Neighbors have already stopped and commented on them....
In this photo, the doors will be painted Sherwin Williams Black Fox, which is a dark charcoal gray, along with the shutters. Dirt is going to be hauled in to level this house (it is much higher than normal due to having to switch to a "block and fill" foundation"....I just love the doors!!
On the painting front, the main color we picked for most walls different in a significant way when using the builder's paint....bases were different, etc. It was a little dark. It is being changed now to Sherwin Williams Perfect Greige and I think it will be a perfect choice. Might look gray...might look taupe depending on the lighting...just what I wanted.
Sherwin Williams Peppercorn has gone in the formal dining room and master bedroom and it is so serene...so striking....

One of the site supervisors/head honchos at our company loved my choice so much he took photos and sent it to his wife...I think we will get many nights of restful sleep in that room!
