Hey there, friends! Hope your week is off to a GREAT start. I had a few more teacher trainings early this week and now its officially summer! How was your weekend? We had a true, summer weekend! Friday we went to a Rangers baseball game (the hubs’ favorite team) and on Saturday my mother-in-law took myself and my brother-in-law’s girlfriend to the Bush Presidential Library for the First Ladies exhibit. It was such a neat exhibit and it runs through October if you’re in the Dallas area and looking for something fun to do/explore in Dallas.
I have been so excited to share some home DIY projects with you this summer! Earlier this spring, we gave our front door a makeover and I am so glad we did. I had been thinking about it for quite awhile, but had to get up the nerve to just do it.
Previously, our door was the same color as our trim, and now it has a beautiful pop of blue. The color is Palladian Blue by Benjamin Moore. Another very popular door color is Wythe Blue, but I went one shade lighter.
The painting process was super easy. It took three coats, but I am so pleased with the final result! Be sure to paint on a pretty day as your door needs to stay propped open while drying. The blue does look a little different at different times of the day, but it mostly reflects the color you see in the last photo (with the wreath). It is a fun pop of color from the street as well. And now I can say things like, “Oh, we’re the house with the blue door” and doesn’t that make things more fun?!
Painting your front door is such an quick and easy, non-permanent change. As the seasons or your style change so can the color of your door.
Have a great Thursday…its almost the weekend!
