Purple Front Door

I've been working on my curb appeal this Summer and watching everyone's porches everywhere I drive. Sometimes my swirving would indicate I should be watching the road. Anyway, I think color adds a lot to curb appeal, and I felt like our front door could really use a splash of something bright.

Blah Brown Before Door

Once you go purple, you never go back!

Not bad, huh? I painted it while bouncing the baby in the bouncy chair with one foot. Lol! I love the color and I'm so glad I had the guts to go through with this! It painted on really bright, but dried a nice shade of purple. Shew! You never can tell with paint.

Red would have been the most obvious color choice for a white farmhouse, but I wanted something a little different. And I love me some purple! Yay for colorful curb appeal!

How fun! I have a white farmhouse with a dark gray roof, and I have considered purple, before, too!

Totally love this!!! I think that color is fabulous. I'm dying to get a pink door. Thanks for sharing your idea. But we are curent looking for new home, so it will have to wait awhile.
Anyway great job.
