The door was installed when we moved in but there are similar ones you can special order from Lowes and Home Depot that I've used. Good Luck with you project!

I hung a silk curtain on either side that is actually strings with some pearls on them...May sound crazy but looks really great and provides privacy and light:)

The paneling was done when we purchased the home but just looks like basic Home Improvement store paneling...should be easy to emulate:)

I see you used Sunrise Red, here in Canada we have Regal Red is it the same colour just renamed? Also, the Rustoleum is an oil based paint - if you mixed this with the Sherwin Williams did it not have to be an oil based paint too because you can't mix oil with latex right?

Not sure if Regal Red is renamed?..... and actually Rustoleum comes in a variety of options-- we used a latex that was off the shelf pre mixed. Good Luck:)

I love your door! Thank you for posting it! This might be a weird question, but is the interior side of the door red? I can't decide if I want my interior red or white. What do you recommend?

I thought about painting it red but it's a really pretty wood that works with my interior staircase wood and floor so kept it wood....If the red would work with your interior you should go for it is always fun!

Hi I really love this door, you have great taste! I live in the UK and am having a door made very much like this. Can you tell me where the ironmongery you used is from - is this also from Lowes? I am having trouble finding something like those in your fab photo. Thank you in advance Tom

I bought them like that:) In spring most home Improvement stores carry them for a few weeks....I trim them to keep the shape but very low maintenance in general.

Rachel - I love the deep red color, I am wondering if the Rustoleum made the Sherwin Williams brighter, or gave it the more deep red color.

Thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Red
Urban doors.
Consider making do with what you have. Of course, the simplest and most inexpensive way to get a “new” front door is to work with what you have. Consider a new paint color, hardware and details like house numbers or a knocker before going with a brand-new door. That’s what designer Rachel Greathouse did for her farmhouse door, seen here, which was originally walnut colored. “Little details are important for any home,” she says. What color should your front door be?
