A wood form was first build under this and then removed after the keystone was replaced.

with the current project I have an interior stress skin wall with a circle door and I'm using the donage (10") from the wall and setting it in a concrete foundation wall form to pour the street side of the garden courtyard

Do you have the special color mix? - I know that you created a special mix of color for the gate. It is lovely. I have tried three colors and can't seem to get this. Do you happen to remember mix?? I think the paint store is getting impatient with me! :-) A thousand thank-you's! Lori

Ellen Kennon has a similar color in her full spectrum paint called Cornflower blue. It's beautiful!

I believe we made a special mix of paint for this door, however, Shermin-Williams has a paint color similar called Honorable Blue. I'll continue to keep my eyes out for you!

Jennifer Ott Interior Design added this to Front and Center Color: When to Paint Your Door Blue
8. Whimsical Blue on Secondary DoorsIf you like the blue doors shown here but don't envision the colors for your own front door, consider painting a secondary door on your property, such as in a gate. It can add a fun focal point to your hardscaping.
Vanessa Brunner added this to How to Choose a Front Door Color
Blue. Although it's often seen indoors, more vibrant shades of blue rarely make an appearance on exteriors. Shake things up by pairing a bright blue with a natural or neutral exterior for an unexpected welcome to your home.Guide: When to Paint Your Door Blue
