My Front Door

I'm getting a little trigger happy with my paintbrush.  It seems I want to paint everything in sight.  It’s just so amazing what a little paint can do to freshen up, in this case my front door.
There are lots of painted front doors for the out side but I rarely see a painted door on the inside.  After painting our basement door, I got inspired to do another.
Here, the door before with some paint already applied.

And after

What d’ya think?
This was my inspiration photo
        I loved this turquoise color, but I just used what I had on had and mixed up a paler version

  1. I personally like your door BETTER than the inspiration photo. It looks more rustic yet shabby. Well done. I too have been drowning in a paint bucket!! Today I'm at it again. :)

  2. I love it! I get trigger happy too! Sometimes I just walk around my house TRYING to find something to paint!

  3. this is going to be happening in my mudroom soon. Thanks for the push!

  4. I love it! What a difference it makes, the color is amazing. I'm painting my door tomorrow, just white though, I wish blue would wok in my mudroom.

  5. Love this!! Exactly what I have planned for my door...on the outside too. I want turquoise, yet aged. Thanks for the inspiration!


  6. The color is beautiful!! Well you know when you are in the mood run with it!

  9. Love it and that is my favorite color. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving kind words. Peggy

  10. This door is amazing!! What a great color choice and I agree I like it better than the inspiration door!! Love your floors too!!

  12. Wow, I love it. The color is perfect. Kisses, Ana

  13. wowza! the door looks amazing! great job!

  14. Wow! That is a-mazing! I've been planning to paint my front door...but it didn't occur to me to paint the inside. Great idea! And your glazing looks fantastic. Nice job!

  15. You nailed it, Kathleen! You actually kicked it up a notch on this one. You did it on your own way, and were tough enough to paint it with green. It definitely puts your home in a refreshing mode that will certainly leave a positive impression on your guests.

  16. You’re actually doing your home a favor by giving your door a makeover. Are you familiar with what the green door means? In some cultures, it refers to prosperity. So, painting your front door green means to attract wealth. Also, it means you’re environmentally attached to nature. It would be nice if you have abundant plants outside your home.
