Our Gleaming Front Door...Before and After.
I always told myself two things I would do when I bought our first house was paint a mural on a wall and paint our front door a bright bold color, and well...I did both. Now that the warmer months are here I decided to get to it and paint our front door. I had a few colors I wanted but after looking at hundreds of paint chips I just went with a pretty yellow. It came out pretty bright but I'm loving it the
The before...It was just to drab for my taste.
I picked Beach Ball yellow from Olympic paints in a satin finish. I updated our hardware by spray painting them in a black matte finish. It took 4 coats but they came out nicely.
When I was looking at painted doors online I kept coming across little "welcome" and "hello's" written on the doors. I thought this was perfect for me and right up my alley. If I could I'd probably paint a mural on our door but I know that's a tad overboard (lol) anyway instead of painting it on because I like change I picked up some alphabet stickers at Hobby Lobby.
I still need to scrape off all the old paint on the stoop and give it a fresh coat. Not sure what to do there as of yet. I just added some flowers and an old rocking chair I had laying around to give it some more color, because if you follow me you know I like color and our yard is beautifully landscaped but for some reason the previous owners left a big blank spot from the door and windows and just laid rock. It was looking a little desert..ish.
I found this cute metal cart at the Goodwill for 5 dollars as well as the cute little plates. I put my herbs on it. It smells lovely when you are standing at our front stoop.
An old rocking chair I got from an auction I had laying around. I'm waiting to find a cute bench for this area.
