Way back in 2013, I decided I couldn’t stand my 90’s evergreen front door a moment longer and I painted it clover green (Come and Knock on my Door). And it was a fabulous update to take our front door into 2013. However, after 7 years of our bright green door I was ready for another change.
Last time to decide on a door color, I gathered a bunch of swatches, taped them to the door and stared at them for a while.
I did NOT do that this time.
This time, I walked into Home Depot, stared at the swatches for about 60 seconds and picked out the color that matched the one I had imagined in my head.
And the color was Paradise Landscape from Behr.
When I bought the paint, I also grabbed a mini roller and disposable paint pan. The paint is a paint and primer all in one, so I figured it would only take a couple coats to get even coverage. As it was, I used a brush for the first two coats and then I used the roller to do a third coat over the flat areas to ensure that no brushstrokes were visible.
All in all, it took just a couple hours for such a fun change. Like last time, I painted both the inside and outside of the door… so it has really updated the look for both our foyer and the front of our house!

I’m so happy with how this little project turned out. Since we’ve been stuck at home for months on end, I’m using this time to really take a look around our house and see which areas need a little updating… and this was 2 hours of time I’m glad I spent!
