I finally did it.
Everything about this door and the entryway space is dark. From the exterior the door had no character or personality. I added a yellow wreath this spring in an attempt to brighten the entrance. Color was long over due for this space. And what a difference it makes!
I have an abundance of hydrangeas in my front landscaping, so drying them and using them in my decor is a no brainer.
Corey has been making these beachy, driftwood-style tables recently. I just love their faded hues of blues and the soft colors they add to my space.
When it was all finished, I removed the wreath, shut the door and went on with summer… and then the feedback started pouring in. I’ve received both texts and comments (some from people I don’t know very well) about how fantastic this door looks. It gets attention all by itself. Someone even asked if I had my doors sprayed because the color is so smooth and vibrant… even on this century-old door.
Yes, this new front door makes me very happy – just as the color is aptly named! So much so, that I painted the back door as well.
