Because you can only read about a nursery project for so long before you abandon ship...I am going to mix it up a little bit today and talk about my
obsession love of unexpected color on a front door.
Who wouldn't smile walking up to one of these doors?
Yellow is cheerful and welcoming...Who hasn't seen this picture a million times and thought "I'm going to go paint my front door yellow right this very minute". Me...that's who. (Still contemplating it).
Blue is calming...I adore this combination.
And of course there are always what I like to refer to as the old standby's...red, brown, black. Most of the houses in my neighborhood have cranberry, dark brown and black. Never being one to "fit in"...I like to repaint my door about once a year. Why not orange...or coral...or....TURQUOISE (be still my heart)!
I've been working on getting the front entry area spring-i-fied. Currently, my door color is BM Wythe Blue (turquoise). Wanna see? The siding color is a Sherwin Williams gray that I can't quite remember off the top of my head. But it gives me a lot of leeway with door colors.
I made the wreath out of coffee filters...The urns were from Goodwill. $8 ea. Ferns are fake from Hobby Lobby (the urns are not good at drying up). The rug is from Grocery Outlet...$5. The little bell on the side of the house was from a garage sale for $2. Adirondack chair is from Harbor Freight. $30. You do NOT have to spend a ton of money to make it beautiful.
I still love coming home to this color. Go get crazy with a paint brush. Want some more inspiration for Wythe Blue? Love lovity love this color!
So. What are you waiting for? Go get crazy with your bad selves!
