I’ve been talking about painting my front door for over a year now, but I just never got around to it. Since my other porch updates, I’ve been thinking about it more and more. And so yesterday I officially decided to paint my front door this weekend (weather permitting)! Now I just need to decide on a color!
I should note that the security door is staying. We like being able to open the front door for fresh air, but I’m mostly keeping it so *hopefully* the HOA won’t notice my new door color. I’m supposed to submit any front yard/house changes for approval beforehand, but I’m going to live life on the wild side and just paint. So there’s a possibility of an “I Painted My Front Door White Again Because the HOA Busted Me” post in the future.
Anyway, right now I’m torn between aqua, yellow, red, and navy. I love this aqua front door from Kammy’s Korner. It’s light and fun…and one of my favorite colors!
I’m also loving all of the yellow front doors that I’ve seen lately. Like Young House Love’s front door and this one from Quite Contrary. They look so cheerful!
Of course a red front door is always a good choice. Did you know that in most cultures red means welcome? I love the red front door (and lion knocker) from The Comforts of Home.
And last, but not least: navy! I think navy would look great with our current house colors (brown/off-white/brick) and it’s not as over-done as red or yellow. I love the before and after navy door makeover from A Swell Place to Dwell.
OK, opinions? What color are you voting for? I’m really undecided, so choosing a color will probably end up being more work than the actual painting!
