Although I was really in over my head, there were a few things that I knew I wanted...basically a white kitchen with blue subway tile, a dark navy blue exterior on the house, and a bright, fun door! My husband was with me on everything...except for that bright fun door ;) It took some serious compromising to avoid another plain white door, but I finally got him to give! (Just in case your are wondering, I had to give in to the ridiculously big shower he wanted that I thought was a total waste of space. Now I absolutely love it so it actually worked out all right for me ;)
I remember posting the paint swatch I wanted to use on FB and asking all my friends what they thought. Everyone seemed to love it, and really...I had already make up my mind and was just looking for some positive reinforcement ;) For YEARS now I have been loving the blue and green combo, so I figured a funky lime-y, apple-y green would be a great compliment to my dark blue exterior.
Honestly, it turned out even better than I imagined! I love how it brightens up my entryway and shows off a little bit of our family's crazy personality too.
I have also loved how easy it has been to decorate for the different seasons. I just threw this wreath together a few nights ago with some hydrangeas, floral sprays, and ribbon from Hobby Lobby. It took under 10 minutes to glue everything together and I love the finished product.
According to Pinterest a green front door evokes feelings of peace, health and growth. These are ALL feelings we strive for in our crazy, loud, and exciting family of 7...especially the peace part ;)
So what do you think about the painted front door trend? Do you have a fun front door, or do you prefer something a little more classic? Thanks for checking us out today and have a lovely Wednesday!
