My summery front door

My sweet girls go to year round school so they are still in class until the end of June.  Then they go back July 25th.  {I know it’s sad now, but having 3 weeks off in Sept. and again in Jan. is so nice!!}  Since I can’t really plan a ton of fun summer outings with my girls, I decided to give our house a summer makeover.  Starting with our front door.  I wanted to brighten it up and let summer greet you first thing when you come over.

Here is a before:

Not bad right, but not great either.  Definitely not bright and summery.  So I decided to pick a yummy yellow.  It took three coats but that isn’t bad when you are working on a small surface.

That’s definately better, but I really didn’t love the black molding.  I decided it needed to go white and I think it MADE the door.

Isn’t it funny how that white molding makes all the difference.  I LOVE it.  Want to see a side by side?

I completely love it!!  It’s such a fun way to freshen up your home for summer.  Everyone that comes by comments on it.  It’s so buttery and cheery.  Simple project that makes a big difference.

  1. Connie, That is a huge transformation. I bet coming home and seeing that brightens your mood. Shows the difference a little paint and color can make, doesn’t it? Found you at Sugar Bee. Stop over and see me at Quirky Vistas!
