Thanks.  There is a side door that goes on that wall, too.  May paint it dark green, too.  Toying with painting them all black, too.

Black would look great also for sure.

Keeping the green.

Local legend says that Charleston Green, a green so deep it looks black, came about after the Civil War when Union troops sent buckets of black paint to help rebuild the decimated town. Colorful Charleston residents couldn’t bear the thought of their Holy City being painted government-issued black, so they tinted the paint with yellow and green, creating Charleston’s signature greenish-black accent color.

Regardless of the tale’s truth, the inky green is ideal for defining shutters, doors, ironwork, and window trim on homes everywhere.  It looks especially great against a white body. For maximum impact, try it in a glossy finish.

so, it just has to be!
