A Door For All Seasons

Let us lay in the sun and count every beautiful thing we see. -Anonymous

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.

Before:

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.

After:

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!
