Front Door Infatuation


Lately I've been thinking a lot about painted front doors. When my husband tore down/re-built our house about 6 yrs ago, he opted to keep the original front door. It is a heavy, carved, dark stained door from the 1920's.....it's very unique and we get a ton of compliments on it, but I feel we need to do something to spruce it up a bit. Although paining the door is out of the question, it hasn't stopped me from dreaming about all of the amazing color options. I would love to have a brightly painted turquoise or yellow door.....but....because that particular look doesn't mesh with the facade of our home, I will just have to settle for admiring these beauties from afar...{*sigh*}

This chrome mail slot, door bell and door knocker are s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g against the turquoise paint color!
