If you missed Part One of this series, you can find it here. I’m trying to make my home a bit unique and stand out from the other homes in our neighborhood by adding curb appeal on a budget.
I painted our front door several years ago. I really love the color and it works well with the brick on our house. It needs to be touched up, but the paint color has faded and my paint doesn’t match. AND…I’m really ready for a change. I’m always hesitant to add wreaths for Valentine’s, 4th of July, and Christmas, because the red always clashes. So…while I’m in the process of sprucing up the area around our front door, I thought it would be a great time to repaint it.
I had hoped to get this project done before we went on vacation, but sometimes life (and a bit of laziness!!) gets in the way.
I’ve been trying to find the right color and I came across an AWESOME tool. It’s the Sherwin Williams Color Visualizer. You just upload your photo, select the surface you want to change, and try a few colors on for size!

And then the fun begins!!
Should I add a pop of color or maybe go more neutral?!?
A pop of color would really stand out, but a neutral would make a great backdrop for a new wreath. Decisions…Decisions!
Here are a few of my favorites:
I really LOVE the last one…Navel. It’s definitely a neutral, but it still adds some color. I also like the second one – Country Squire. I think I will pick up some samples this week and see what works.
Which one do you like? Is your door neutral or does it add a POP of color? When you decorate for the seasons, do you try to match the decor to the color of your door?
