Fresh Front Doors

We think painting your front door is a "naptime" DIY project that will deliver instant gratification. We love projects that take little time and have a big impact. One gallon of Exterior High Gloss and you are on your way....
Unless your door is red like mine,which I like, but...
 I would also love to change it to yellow like this...
or this
but I am thinking it would take lot of primer to cover the red...maybe I should leave that to a professional:) How about green..this green door below from Blueprint Magazine...


was the inspiration that made Kris put her house number on her door
(see below with Mac)

This orange door below from Lauren at Pure Style Home looks so modern and fresh...
Look at it from the inside...WOW!
Another orange beauty...
or maybe blue...

or if you're not feelin' blue on the outside, how about in...

or classic black...

put a fresh coat of paint on your front door and in your back pocket...

This is great! I can say that these doors come with a variety of detail choices from type of wood, style of design, color, texture, glass panes, and varnishing. Anyway, thanks and I will definitely visit this site more often.

Interesting post. I think there is one very good reason why front doors are less used, and that is because we no longer have staff to open them for us, and we're now the delivery boy with the groceries that go into the kitchen.

I've been trying to figure out the color of green they used in the Blueprint Magazine- Any ideas?

Kris and Jen said...

I don't know either Andrea but looking at Benjamin Moore's online colors I would bet Traffic Light Green, Paradise Green, Neon green or Neon Lime??? Wish I knew for sure but hope that helps:)
