Front Door Reveal

Remember this curb appeal post?

The curb appeal to-do list is three quarters of the way done:  door has been painted, hardware has been polished, and the new shutters have been installed. Last item left is to paint the railing, but we're thinking we'll wait until the fall to do that.

Here is a before look at the hardware on the door (I can't believe I don't have any full length photos of the door before):


The hardware was in need of some serious polishing.




And here is our front door today...


The paint color is June Day by Sherwin Williams. You can also see the new shutters in the photo below.


I LOVE it!! And I also love that we are the only yellow door on the block. 

How about some bling bling?


Love how shiny it looks.


Knocker still needs some shining but overall I think it's looking pretty good.

I love seeing this door from the street.

Do you have any curb appeal plans for the fall?

  9. I cannot believe that is the same hardware- I had to go back and re-read. It is beautiful and the yellow is too. I love yellow houses and I love yellow doors- nice choice! If you don't mind- I'm going to add it to my Pinterest- I have a board devoted to front entrances. "What color should I paint my front door?" Is a question that I get asked a lot. I'll of course link it back to here. What did you use for polish on the hardware?

  11. It looks gorgeous! Great job! I love the yellow door. It is so cheerful and chic! The shutters and brick work beautifully with it. :)

  12. Oh, I love this! The yellow looks absolutely great! And your hardware cleaned up nicely! Painting our doors was one of the most impactful projects we've done to date I think. I'd love to update the hardware and get a big round door knocker, but somehow it just isn't fitting into the budget at the moment. Maybe someday... :)
