FIRST IMPRESSIONS – AWESOME FRONT DOOR COLORS!

 

Drive around house hunting and you will quickly see that an eye catcher and often a BIG game changer- at least in Curb Appeal – is the FRONT DOOR. I do love a beautiful wooden front door…

LAURA TREVEY – HERE IA GREAT COMBINATION OF COLOR AND WOOD!

….but often, over time, the front door has been painted. Our front door has been at least 5-6 different colors in 14 years – AND who knows how many colors in its lifetime!

Our front door is currently painted Benjamin Moore ANDERSON BLUE from the Williamsburg Collection.

I like using a Gloss or High Gloss on my front door. Benjamin Moore just came out with one called “GRAND ENTRANCE” in their AURA line…. In the past I have used The ADVANCE PAINT which is a oil and latex mix. If your front door is older (like ours) and you are not sure whether it was painted with an OIL (it was) or  LATEX based paint – the ADVANCE paint Is A Great option…and will prevent peeling. We primed all of our doors with an Oil based primer FIRST and then painted them. I absolutely LOVE the ADVANCE paint for all wooden trim and window frames. It lays beautifully – very smooth – like oil and cleans up – like Latex!

Because Doors are painted Usually while they are hanging vertically – make sure you use thin coats to avoid dripping.

Lets take a look at some awesome front door colors!!!

A QUESTION THAT COMES UP – ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE USING A BRGHT FUN COLOR ON YOUR EXTERIOR DOOR IS –

“DO YOU PAINT THE INSIDE THE SAME AS THE OUTSIDE”?

I DON’T KNOW THAT THERE IS A RULE ABOUT THIS – EXCEPT TO SAY THAT THE INTERIOR OF THE DOOR IS USUALLY A BIT MORE “GENERIC” BECAUSE THERE IS MORE GOING ON COLORWISE– DECORATING-WISE INSIDE THAT OUT. Our front door is different outside than in because ALL of our doors inside downstairs are painted Benjamin Moore “GRAPHITE”

THIS PINK DOOR LOOKS GREAT WITH THE INTERIOR DECOR

HERE IS ANOTHER BEAUTIFUL INTERIOR DOOR – AHHH I LOVE BLUE.

  1. I live in a flat so my front door is wooden brown like all the others in the building, but if I had a home, my front door would be yellow or green (although I love all the others specially the red and the blue ones).

  2. I have an almost yellow – creamy butter colored house. I painted the front door black and the inside kelly green. Now I want to change it. Maybe outside kelly green as well. Maybe navy blue? Hmmm….love that mossy olive green one. 🙂

Thank you for visiting My Old Country House...I’d love to hear what you thinking. Let me know in the comments. And Have a great Day!
