Up Your Curb Appeal By Painting Your Front Door

Cake & Confetti

When we moved into our house last summer the whole thing was painted brown.

It didn’t match our style so we painted it a very light grey with light trim. 



The only thing we didn’t paint was the front door. I wanted to be 100% sure of the color before we moved forward with the project so we ended up leaving it stained.

I knew I wanted some shade of blue for the front door but I can be easily overwhelmed by color options.
