I got a new door! When we bought this house, I didn’t love the front door and I knew that eventually I would buy a new one.  My front door had a couple of fun looks while I was waiting for the new one.

First, it was the turquoise door.

Then I painted it apple green.  I was known as the house with the green door…seriously, that is how I described my house.

It was hard to choose a new door, it was a big purchase, and I wanted to get it just right. We ended up choosing this door, and I love it! I was nervous about all the glass in the door, but I love how open it makes the front of my house feel.

I had to paint front and back of the door. I decided to paint the inside door and side lights white, but I wanted a pop of color on the outside.

Normally I have painted all my doors with just regular valspar paint, but I chose to go with Modern marvels never fade door paint. The front of my house is on the west side, and I am worried about fading so I decided to give it a try.  The paint was great, I just had to brush it on instead of rolling it on with a foam roller like I usually do. When I started rolling the paint, it made small air bubbles so I quickly started brushing it to eliminate the problem.

It was a big project but I love the pop of color, and I love how it goes with the red brick and the gray color in my entry way. Defiantly worth the work!
