But first things first.
I AM happy about having a white house, however, the front door wasn't that inviting.
It was just plain blah!
When we painted the front door on our previous house it made a huge difference to the feel of the house.
So painting the front door on this new house was one of my first priorities.
I don't think it had ever been changed from the original primed or whatever color. The trim had been painted white and I did decide to leave that. But I wanted something fun and happy and welcoming. And I wanted it soon, even though there is still so much to do.
It was a toss up between a green or orange or blue.
Turquoise won out in the end.
Ignore the mess behind it and just notice the pretty door.
That mess is mostly gone now, but I wanted to paint and "accomplish" something while in the throes of unpacking and sorting things.
I LOVE this color and when, or if, we get tired of it we can just paint it again. Super easy!
Doesn't this look much more inviting?
