The wait is over! front door reveal!

I guess I could've put this up a few weeks ago, but I wanted to get the whole front of the house done before I revealed the front door. I painted it a few weeks ago and then (slowly) the rest of the front came together. The awning went up, I spray painted the mailbox and the house number sign black, and Jason finished the shutters. Once we painted those and put them up I decided it was time to show you!

So you'll remember that the front of the house looked like this...

It was pretty plain Jane with a white door and forest green accents. I was SOOOOOO sick of that look so now the front looks like this....

Don't you love it?! See the front door? Oh wait, I'm sneaky...I saved that till last. So what color do you think I went with? What do you think would look the best with my cute new black awning, dark grey shutters and white house? And, by the way, did you notice the cute topiary cut-outs that my husband created in the shutters? I love a talented guy like that!

So the wait is over! I chose Benjmain Moore's Yellow Rain Coat and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it so much! It makes me happy when skies are grey...

See the cute topiaries?

And, finally, the "Hello" on the bottom of my door.

Did you guess right? I'm so glad I chose this color rather than the green, and I can't wait until February when winter is really depressing but I have this beautiful, happy yellow door!

Thanks for hanging in there with me while I got it all done! I'll be posting Fall pictures soon with all of my mums and pumpkins planted up in the front pots. I can't wait for that!


  1. Fantastic!! Love it!! Everything looks awesome! It was worth the painful wait.... :-)

  2. Thanks, JoAnna! Believe was way more painful to me! I'm glad to be done, but now for the back. It's always something. I will replace these pictures with sunny ones today when I get home. It's much cuter when the sun is shining on it! -Stacy
