Making an Entrance Part II–Front Door Makeover

Front door makeover

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day. I spent the day with my mother, daughter, brothers, sister, and their families. The entire family went out to dinner to celebrate. It was quite a challenge to seat all 20 of us together, but we managed to pull it off.

Afterwards, my daughter bought me flowers at a local nursery and helped me plant them in the garden. I finished off the day by painting my front door Deep Amethyst by Glidden. It was a bold color choice and I was a bit nervous to make the change but I’m thrilled with the end result. If you could throw caution to the wind and paint your door any color you want, what color would you choose?

    Ah, I love the purple door! Purple is always good when it’s a really smashing shade like this one. If I was going to paint my front door, I’d probably do some crazy blue/teal/aqua design with purple accents. :)

      Aqua is one of my favorite colors. If you go for it, send a pic, please!

    The purple you picked is gorgeous. For our door, we picked red parrot. :-)
