Picking doors! by happypat

Picking doors!

We had a catalogue full of door styles, front door styles that is.
I don’t want any frosted glass so we took ourselves off to the factory this morning to have a good look.
We have decided what style, just the colour now....an anthracite grey colour as same as the windows or a pale grey green....
To be discussed but we both are both in different camps at the moment! 🤔🤔

Three good things:
1. A very fitting & simple service for the Duke of Edinburgh today....simple is best I reckon!
2. I lost my mobile phone yesterday just before Charlie’s funeral. Parked at my friends I knew I had had it in the car but then I couldn’t find it anywhere, I searched for ages in every corner no sign. Unfortunately I had switched it on silent because of the funeral.
Anyway I drive home around ten miles & as I parked up at the bungalow I suddenly saw my phone on the car roof! It had stayed on their through the the journey round corners etc etc! I was very lucky!
3. Connie is having a great day walking in the Lake District.
I’m not sure my phone would stay in place on the car roof with my driving!! We enjoyed Prince Phillip’s service as well. Beautiful music!

@loweygrace I have roof rack rails on my car but it wasn’t them holding it on, the phone seemed to stick by a sort of suction...I think the leather case was the reason thankfully.

Contrast is nice. Hope you come to a mutually satisfying conclusion

Wow! Allan says you obviously don't drive the way he does!! 🤣🤣

So many decisions! I worked in a new residential construction company for many years and assisted the homeowners in selecting their fixtures...doors, windows, light fixtures, tiles, flooring, etc. I carried a coin in my pocket to flip when the couple couldn’t agree...he would win the toss and select the foyer light, and she would get the next decision! It worked really well.

I hope the discussions about grey green or anthracite grey will at last bring you in the same camp...
April 17th, 2021  
Sounds like a bit of a headache! I’m sure you will both be in your camp in the end!
I thought the service was lovely and the TV coverage was so respectful

Hope you reach an amicable decision on the door.You were so lucky with your phone on the car roof

@bkp Must remember that method but I think we need to come to a proper agreement, it’s quite possible I will change my mind or Harry, we can easily be swayed! @denful @gijsje @joansmor

@sarah19 Well strangely enough I am not a slow driver Sallie, much faster than Harry!!! It was so flat & didn't move at all.... the case definitely helped!

I say go with the windows. Which side does that put me on? Also, I painted my door a nice green but I wish id gone with grey and now have to repaint but I've lost momentum

Lets hope uou can reach a decision soon on the dòors at lest least it only between two.
Wow you must be a good steady driver.. well done..

So lucky with the phone! My lovely dark blue Farrow and Ball door is blistering in the sun already - so anything powder coated sounds good to me!

We have green door here. Love my green door

@julzmaioro No that’s the funny thing, I’m a fast driver...it was a miracle!

@newbank @judithg @fueast

Well I’m inclined to agree with the window match....Harry thinks that too but I think under the porch would it all be too dark? I think fir safety we will probably go dark but will take the sample colours tomorrow & see what it looks like perhaps with opposite house windows which are same colour as ours! Thanks for the input folks! !

Decisions , decisions ! and too many choices ! I am sure you will come to the right decision in the end ! Lucky you re your phone !
April 17th, 2021  
Such a huge choice
April 17th, 2021  
Very lucky re the phone Pat. A great outcome and one to smile over in the future. Good luck on the door colour decision. We chose a blue/ grey. No sorry, I chose it, Peter went along with it!
April 17th, 2021  
@busylady I reckon that’s what will happen here too Judith! 🤣
April 17th, 2021  
different camps :) I am sure Harry will soon be agreeing with Pat's camp !!!
April 17th, 2021  
Decisions, decisions.
You must be a careful driver to still have your phone on the roof of the car.

We did put the funeral on record because 3 pm UK time is midnight here but we stayed up and watched the funeral anyway. I thought it was very tasteful and fitting but the Queen looked so tiny sitting on her own, so sad.

Good luck figuring out the camps

Can't believe the phone story ... very lucky!! As for the door, either colour will be grand - both nice and neutral. Ours is just a dark wooden door.

Shakin' Stevens would want you to choose a green door, can't see one in your capture.

Quite a task, to choose a front door!
