Would You Paint The Front Door Red?

Red Door There are a lot of great things about the color red.  Nails, shoes, lips, but a door?  Is it too crazy?  Is it too out there?  Would you Paint the Front Door Red?

Maybe I'm partial.  There's something about a pop of color that makes me happy.  We put two coats on ours and as soon as we thaw out a bit after "snowmagedon" hit over the weekend, ours will be painted to perfection in Crimson Red.

But it was somewhere between the first and second coat that I started to fret.  Should I have gone this bold?  What was wrong with black?

A little more paint, though, and I knew it was just what the house needed.  The neighbors all agree, too, which is really great news when you are the new kid on the block.

I've rounded up a bit of inspiration to try to convince you to consider red...
