Time to add curb appeal. Do we keep the same front door paint color or do we switch it up with one of these blue or blue-green front door colors? Weigh in!
How’s your summer going so far? I spent most of last week outdoors staining the deck and prepping the fence for a new coat. Both took a terrible beating last year during a huge hail storm, so pulling out the paint brushes again was inevitable. It’s not the best of jobs, but the results are so worth it. One day soon we’ll be enjoying a lazy afternoon relaxing in our loungers! What book do you suggest I start reading?
After the back yard is finished up, my focus will switch to the front of our house. It’s been about 5 years since I’ve touched up the stain on our front porch, so it’s definitely time. Here’s what it looked like back then:
I plan on sticking with the same shades of grey for the porch shutters and trim, but I am considering a new front door paint color. Currently, it’s Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron, a dark grey with a bit of a blue undertone. It’s lovely, but there are times when I feel like I’m ready for something a bit different. Maybe?
Over the years, I’ve changed up the decor seasonally, which has kept me going. Perhaps that’s all I need to do again.
Or, perhaps, I should leave the front door as is and paint the yellow bench a different color instead? It was a bold choice for me back then, but it still does a good job of waking up the space. I’ve had so many offers on that bench, but it’s from the farm I grew up. I don’t think I could ever part with it. I feel it adds a bit of character too.
If this was your front porch, what would you do? In a nutshell, what color should I paint my front door (if any)? Black? Navy? Aqua? Blue-grey? Something else?
I’m definitely open to new paint color suggestions, so send any ideas you may have my way. However, I won’t do anything too crazy like bright purple or orange. It’s just not me.
