Front Door Dilemma

You know when you wake up one morning and shout, “I’m tired of looking at this maroon front door!” That’s where I am. Despite fifty other projects halfway started, I’m on to thinking about paint colors. Sorry everyone who lives with me and my project ADD.


Oh my, our front entryway is so sad. Except for our cat, Truffle, peeking through the glass. Back to the maroon. I’m pretty sure it is the original color, because there are heavy aluminum awnings in our back with maroon stripes. The storm door was aluminum originally and is now black. We’re going to replace it with a door that is one panel of glass so you can actually see the door. Our doorknob is currently gold, and that will be replaced with a black knob to contrast with the escutcheon.

Here’s the fun part. Paint! I’m glad I put these in Photoshop, because some of the beautiful colors in my mind look…less beautiful on the door.

In my mind, the pencil yellow color was perfect and now I’m definitely having second thoughts. What do you think?

    Personally, I love the aqua one. But I am slightly biased to that color…

    I like the aqua one as well. Though you definitely need to support your color choice with some patio decorations.

      True! I’m going to look for a bullet planter or something like that. We’ll see what I find!

    thats a hard call! the yellow is fun but i feel like it needs other tie ins through patio decorations and whatnot. the celery and grey blue are safe choices on their own and might give you more color palette choices in the long run with your auxiliary items. you’ll make anything work considering how wonderful the colors are in ‘our’ house and i would have NEVER had the imagination for all of them! 🙂

      Patio decorations are a mystery to me other than my fluorescent snowman. This is going to be a challenge! Thanks Tessa 🙂
