People who live in areas with red clay soil, and own kitties who “knock” at the door, should NOT have white doors on their house.
While white doors may look lovely, the fact is evident, that they are magnets for ugly paw prints. No matter how often you clean them, well, eventually the grime just stains and won’t come off!
After three years of battling the never ending grunge I finally decided on a different plan.
I think the color works both aesthetically and functionally. I will still have to wipe it down, but at least it won’t show the stains anymore!
So, I guess I’ll be painting the back door next!

I love how the door turned out! Our backdoor is looking pretty grimy thanks to the clay soil and dogs scratching to be let in, so this might be a great fix for it.
Thanks Anke! I hope it works for you too. 🙂 PS: Pictures if you do!
I love the color 😀
Your home is lovely and I think the door colour adds a lot to it. It’s very appealing and how perfect that it is also functional!
Cindy, I’m glad that you like it! And yes it was truly a functional outcome that I desired. It was just such a bonus that it also worked with the existing color of the house.
Your home is beautiful and I would just like to tell you what a wonderful writer you are. You have such a knack for story telling and I very much enjoy your writing. You are very talented and interesting! I will be subscribing to your blog and i look forward to getting to know more about you.
