The transformation of your house/garden is amazing. It doesn't look like the same place. Love the red door. It screams 'welcome'. Would like to see an after of the entire front now. :)

Cindy at enclos*ure

Beautiful red door! Could the bench be stained a very dark brown? Then it probably wouldn't need re-painting.


Cindy — ​Good idea about the bench. It was stained originally but has been sitting outdoors for 20 years!

Lisa — I have to get that part of the garden looking as good as the paint job before I take a picture.

Jane Miller

Wow, looks so good. Especially like the red entrance.

Erin @ The Impatient Gardener

Oh I love the door color! Isn't it nice when you have a good experience with a contractor? It always makes me feel good about spending the money to do something that we could have done ourselves when the job is done right and the contractor is a nice, professional person. House looks great!


Color is so important. My husband thinks houses should be white, but he does allow colored doors. I really appreciate your giving the paint mfg and names. I love that red.


Wow! Glad to have had even the slightest influence in your choices! The front looks excellent - really amps up the Asian theme without being over the top. And "...on the same page politically." How do you even get into that with a house painter!?

Jim —​Thought you would be amused that I put my download from your post to good use after only 5 years!

If you live in Madison, it's all politics all the time. We or he must have​ made one of those subtle comments opening the door.
