Dingy Door & Daydreams

The front door should welcome your guests, not scare them off! :)

Our dingy, white door has been on the list of things we'd like to upgrade since we moved in.  We're not a fan of the arched window or the dents and dings.

After living here for 5 years with minimal $$ for remodeling, I realized I can still dream of a new door while improving the one we currently have for the price of a quart of paint. (I wish I would have thought of that sooner!)

In those "dreams" we would have a real wood door, but for now I had to pick a paint color that would coordinate with our current white and green exterior.  Red doors are fun, but not my thing. After contemplating many colors, I chose a grayish-aqua that wouldn't fight the green and white, and it is like a sneak peek of the color scheme inside the house.

After a good scrub, I painted the door Behr Cloud Burst.  It is a lovely shade that is just a little darker than a duck egg blue. It was an easy decision since I already fell in love with this color after painting my pantry door.


Now to hunt in the basement for the leftover white paint to finish off the trim around the door...
And for more "pinspiration" for outdoor improvements, see my board here. :)

Don't forget to embrace what you already have!
