Well, since we have finished the wall, the next step is our front door. It’s not really in any shape that we use it at all. Plus, I don’t think it has been painted since they built this house in 1950.
A nice shade of cream and dirt.
Plus an aluminum door that locks after each time you shut the door.
Needless to say we don’t use it very often…like never.
So, I am tackling painting the front door. For us, this will be no easy task because I get to scrape of all of the layers of that lovely, peeling paint.
Oh, and convince the hubby to buy and install us a new screen door… (John, you are the best husband in the whole wide world just so you know. I mean, a husband who drops everything to come help with craft time at VBS, paints, builds, cleans, you are the bomb-diggedy 🙂
And yes, I quite possibly, maybe brown nosing just a smidgen.
So, I have been scouting out front doors and what to do for our farmhouse. Our brick is kind of reddish/orange so not every color is going to go with this. I can’t wait to show you what I decided on, but I want that to be a surprise for you.
Don’t we all just need a little surprise in our lives?
Here are some of my favorites of front door colors. Let me know which one is your favorite 🙂
Painted Front Doors
This just says come on in! It’s wonderful inside! All this white makes me think of being clean, it would look even better with muddy finger prints all over it.
So earthy, love it.
Not just any green, this neon green is so fun and playful! Check it out from This Old House.
A more muted green. Leave it to Better Homes and Gardens to come up with this amazing look!
This navy blue is so regal. Thank you Southern Living!
Tone it up some, add some matching shutters, major curb appeal people.
Nothing like this pop of color, all white house with a blue door.
Add a little zing to it and you get this…Wowzer!
This gorgeous, more muted burgundy is a perfect sophisticated look. Thank you Pretty Handy Girl!
This beautiful yellow door is such a happy way to say welcome!
Another shade of yellow: So cheery 🙂
I’m in love with all of the grays, check this one out:
And last but definitely not least…Black.
This farmhouse door in black is simply breathtaking. The people at Farmhouse Touches nailed it here!
Alright, now that I’ve laid it all out there, what is your fav?
Let the work begin, and the painting 🙂 I can’t wait to show you the surprise!
