    I think this will be the color in my new kitchen. Similar to Cedar Crest by Ace Hardware.

    It actually is a dove grey, no green tones at all and is called Promise by Para in the Sarah Richardson collection available at Lowe's in Canada.
    Hope that helps!

Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to Could the Inside of Your Front Door Use a New Color?Jan 17, 2016

Is there a favorite color you’d like to see enhancing the inside of your front door? Painting a door is a fairly simple one-day or weekend DIY job, depending on experience level. Here are the supplies and steps to get you on your way to a more colorful entry: (Note: The steps will vary slightly depending on the door material and any previous paint, varnish or stain used on the door.)Step 1. Begin by gathering your supplies: medium- and fine-grit sandpaper, tack cloth, painters tape, brush, adhesion primer and semigloss paint. Step 2. Lightly sand the door to remove the top layer of varnish, paint or stain and give the surface a “tooth” for the primer to adhere to. Start with medium-grit sandpaper and finish with fine-grit; wipe clean with tack cloth.Step 3. Tape the door edges and any hardware, leaving only the surfaces to be painted exposed. Step 4. Paint a layer of primer. Consider KILZ Adhesion Primer, designed to bond to a variety of tough-to-paint surfaces. Step 5. Let the primer dry, then very lightly sand with fine-grit sandpaper. Step 6. Wipe clean with tack cloth. Step 7. Apply the first coat of paint. This may be enough in many cases, or, depending on the color used, a second coat may be required for optimal results. If so, repeat steps 5 and 6, followed by the second coat.More: DIY Painting Project: A Colorful Front Door

Beadboard wainscoting is used on this wall, and there is a tongue and groove ceiling.

Can you do only one door? Yes. A good way to get your feet wet is to paint the inside of a mudroom entry door. You'll love it so much, you'll likely end up painting the rest of the interior doors soon after.

A tray kept by the door you most often use will offer a great place to place wet or muddy shoes and boots.
