Front Door Dreaming


Posted by Rebecca, July 6th, 2012

About a year ago, I pinned this picture on Pinterest…

It got me thinking about painting our front door, which is currently the same brown color as our shutters (this is an old picture from the fall).

Then I saw this picture on Pinterest and I loved the blue door with the blue hydrangeas.

So I started thinking that color could work because we also have blue hydrangeas. I love them, so why not make them stand out a little more? Btw, look at how big they are now after just 2 years!

After teaching Mike what robin’s egg blue was, I did a little Pinterest search to find some more inspiration. Why not share, eh? Since I don’t have much time for projects, I spend a lot more time brainstorming and googling for ideas these days 🙂

#1. Love this blue gray color, so classy

#2. We’ve even talked about putting some numbers on the door itself, sort of like this (I also love the door itself but buying a new door is not in the plans…)

#3. This looks nothing like our house, but fabulous none the less

#4. Nice and clean, and looking more like our door

I’ve been itching to spruce up our front porch (replace the lights, get a bench, do some cleaning). Why not add another goal to the list? We just started giving Easton bottles, so maybe once this heat wave ends I can spend some quality time out there. I mean, it’s been almost a year since I pulled a weed myself 🙂

    IMHO, I would be concerned the highlighter green or aqua blue would look funny next to your pretty earthtone stonework. It seems like it would be better to choose a nice red/burgundy that blends well with your stonework; that would still make your front door stand out.

  2. I always thought painting your front door a bright colour was inviting. Robin’s egg blue is a great choice, soft, but noticeable. BTW, your hydrangeas are lovely!

    I say go for it!! I think it’ll look great! Besides, we painted our door with a single Valspar sample can a few years ago, so it’s not like it’d be expensive to change if you hate it.

  4. I agree with Sharon, the first thing I thought of was red when I saw your stone colors. But it is just paint, so you could always change it if it doesn’t look good. I would go with a darker blue green because the lighter blue might get washed out, but you never know until you try it. Maybe get a sample pot and paint it in a board and lay it against the door for a couple of days and see what you think.

  5. Love the door inspiration, especially with the hydrangeas!

    Speaking of your hydrangeas, they got that big after only two years?!?! How big were they to begin with and how do you take care of them? I have one bush now that is pretty tiny, but I’m hoping to plant a few more and get them all big like that!

      They were Endless Summer hydrangeas that just came in a small pot. We don’t do much for them, we just try to water them when it’s hot in the summer… or when they get wilted and look like they’re crying for water 🙂

  6. Ive been doing some door googling this week because ours were delivered and installed today!! I can’t decide if we need a POP or something to blend. But I think the blue would fit well with your home.

    And those flowers already after only 2 tears? WOW!
