Paint your front door!

This is part two of what I am calling “operation front porch.” Part one was the new wire basket mailbox. And part three will be replacing the front porch light (but who knows when that will happen).

I have been wanting to paint the front door ever since we moved in. In my opinion, it was just a little blah:

Dark and dreary.

I knew I wanted to paint it a bright color so I finally decided to go with Sherwin Williams Mariner.
I took inspiration from this bird house and also from the pillow that is sitting in the swing on the front porch.

Wow! what a difference a few coats of paint makes!

I think our house definitely looks more cheerful and inviting now! Painting your front door can really change the mood of your whole house and since you only need to buy a quart of paint it isn’t a big investment.

Is your front door a bright color? If not, what color would you paint it?
