The red door revamp!

This is the story of a woman named JoAnna. She is a loyal follower of The Cozy Urban Home. Perhaps you've heard of it? JoAnna always comments with creative new ideas for things, witty comments, and stories of her own experiences. We like JoAnna! 

Well, as all of us sometimes do, she needed a change. She wanted to paint her front door, but was wondering what color. As I know, this is a tough decision. Clearly, though, JoAnna is way better at making a quick decision than I am. She threw out the idea for a red door and I was hooked. Afterall, if my whole block hadn't gone red...that is what I would be doing too. JoAnna has the perfect house for a red front door. It is dark grey with black shutters. What color is more inviting than red? I don't think you can ever get sick of a red door. However, if you's only paint! Go buy another quart and paint it a new color.

So here is how the story of a woman named JoAnna ends!

Posh Red by Valspar. Wonderful paint brand, I might add.

 So let's take a look at the before pictures of JoAnna's home! Do you see how the door just blends in?

Here is another can hardly see the front door!

Now for the big change. This new door just says, "Come in! I baked oatmeal raisin cookies for you!" I am not making this up, people...JoAnna has two little kids and managed to finish painting her garage trim on Friday, paint her Posh Red door on Saturday, and make oatmeal raisin cookies on Sunday. I'd like half of her energy, please!

So let's take a look!

See how much more inviting this door is?

This picture shows the door open so you can really see the color. Look at JoAnna's son too! How cute is he?! We all know he had to be a super awesome helper while his mom was painting too. Actually, from what I hear, all painting happened while the kids were napping.

Way to go JoAnna! You gave your home a nifty little facelift in one day. I love the color with your house, and I'm hoping tons of good fortune and good luck flows into your home every single time your new Posh Red door opens.

Apparently there are more makeovers coming to this home! Hopefully, JoAnna and her husband will be kind enough to let us post them again.
