If you can have a "thing" for front doors, then consider me head over heels for quite a few. I've always been a fan of putting some color on your door to create an inviting entryway and my own house is no exception. As a matter of fact, painting the door was at the top of my to do list when we moved in. #itsallaboutpriorities
After turning to friends, family, and pinterest for ideas and eventually taking the The Front Door Test, I chose yellow. According to the test, having a yellow door means:
You Are Happily Helpful
You like to feel like you're making a difference in the world.Friendly and optimistic, you are a very welcoming person.You like to bring people together. You are the perfect host.
Not too shabby, right? Hopefully our guests will find it to be true. This door "personality" (if you can call it that) pretty much sealed the deal for me- all that was left was to pick the perfect shade. Similar to judging a book by its cover and a wine by its label I absolutely pick paints by their name. Of course I go off the color initially, but if it doesn't have a good name forget.about.it. It can't/won't be considered. So, what'd I pick?
Drum roll please...
... Behr's "Yellow Brick Road"
For a little extra personality, I added the "hello" decal from Hello Vinyl on Etsy. It turned out cheerful and inviting which is exactly what I hoped for.
Would you say its an improvement? I think so. Have you painted your front door? I'm curious to see what other fun color choices people are making.
