Question
When I paint the interior of my front door, do I match the color of the walls (slightly darker) or the color of the surrounding wood trim (lighter).

Answer
Donna,

Thanks for writing.

It is really up to you. Usaually, if one wants the look of wood to continue into the door, then paint it the same as your woodwork or close to it. If you are going to paint it your wall color, the just put the same color on the door as the wall.

Have fun.
