Hello Pretty Handy readers! I’m Colleen from Just Paint It! Blog and today I have a collection of 32 gorgeous colorful doors to inspire your next curb appeal project. With warmer temps here, most of us are spending more time outside, sprucing up our yards and outdoor spaces. One simple way to make a big impact is to paint the front door (and if you have to strip it first, check out this great tutorial for stripping paint with video tutorial.)
While I don’t see this done too much here in California, Brittany found most of these bright and cheery portals in a local neighborhood in Raleigh! Although a few doors are from her visit to the U.K and Scotland. See if you can guess which ones!
A Sherwin Williams color deck was used to approximate the paint colors of these doors. Keep in mind when painting your own, it may require two or more coats to get some of the rich tones in this collection. It’s always wise to paint a sample board to hold up to your door so you can see how the natural lighting affects that particular hue.
Let’s start out with some sunny yellows.
This next door is close to Chartreuse, a blend between yellow and green.
Moving towards a brighter green we have “Outrageous Green”. Isn’t it stunning next to the white columns and millwork?
If bright greens are a little too, well, bright, add some blues to cool them down.
Make a statement with a blue front door by taking the green hues out completely.
If those blues are a little too bold, lighten them up for a refreshing look.
If you’re craving even more color, go ahead and paint the trim too!
Think purple is too wild of an idea for a front door? Think again.
As a matter of fact, this first lovely pair belongs to none other than Pretty Handy Girl herself!
Shades of red offer a classic look, yet still provide individuality.
This copper entry offers the warmth of wood against the red brick facade.
While this coral door adds a splash of fun to an otherwise staid townhome.
If you’re feeling adventurous, this eclectic entry will stir your senses.
There you have it – 32 colorful doors! Such a great way to transform the look of the front of your house, with very minimal effort.
It’s pretty hard for me a favorite to choose but I’m partial to the blues. What’s your favorite color of the collection? Any plans to paint your front door this summer? What color do you have planned?
