Front door vamp up

I am WAAAY behind on posting about our recent DIY/fix-it-up projects we've been working on, but actual summer weather has finally arrived so we've been taking full advantage of it! One quick project I did about a month ago was I painted our front door apple green! I had been wanting to paint the door some color for some time, but was unsure what color would look right with our ALL white house with blue/gray trim. I originally wanted to paint the door yellow; bright, fun, cheery, welcoming... But then I thought "what would a Christmas wreath look like on a yellow door" hmm. Then I thought black would look nice, but that seemed a little boring for me. To help me decide on a door color I took a picture of the front of our house, brought it into Photoshop, and colored the door!
Here were my choices:
{only kidding, our mailbox is already pink, I can't push my limits too much} :-)
And, I decided on the green! It's a natural color that looks good with grass, trees, dirt... my car! and come Christmas time it will be the perfect shade to hang a wreath on! To make this even better I already had this shade of green that we bought last summer off the "opps" rack at Home Depot for $5 - I forgot about it, $5 we spent last summer well spent!

While I was painting Charlie and Hamilton were caged, and Trudie sun bathed!
I really like how it turned out, it gives our house some much needed outside character.


  1. Love the paint job on the door!!! Hey, will you guys be able to make it to the wedding Aug 7th?

  2. I think you should have gone with the pink... just kidding. I love the green door in OSU country ;) It's a really neat green!
