I meant to do this many many months ago, but where does time go? Anyone else with me? Since having kids, life has become quite busy. I used to think life would be so easy and simple if I were a stay at home mom. So much time to do whatever I wanted to do during the day, go places, get projects done. YEAH RIGHT! Ha, funny the grass is always greener on the other side. All that to say, sometimes it takes a while to get anything done around here, like creating a MODERN FARMHOUSE FRONT DOOR DECOR.
My front porch was not in terrible condition when we moved in two years ago. Lets just say I wanted to put my own “touch” on it. I had seen all these cute pictures on Pinterest of front porches with “FARMHOUSE STYLE” wreaths and number decals. I had to have that same style!! Here are a few pictures that inspired my new FRONT DOOR DECOR.
I love the simplicity of a pretty pale color, a simple DIY wreath and number decals. I think it makes it look so welcoming!
Here is a before pic:
Like I said before, not bad, but a lot of brown (this was a theme in my home when we bought it).
I knew I wanted to repaint the front door and I love all the pictures I had seen on Pinterest of doors painted in the color blue. So here I go painting….
sorry for the reflection, this was taken from my car window. You can see the blue I started with, but for some reason, I wasn’t happy with it. It just didn’t match the home or the style I was going for with my new FRONT DOOR DECOR.
After a few more tries with a few other paint colors (gray, brown) I eventually settled on a mix of a grey and a brown. Yes, I mixed paint colors. FYI if you ever do this, just make sure to save enough for touch ups, because you will never be able to mix the same color again.
Next I painted the columns. They were a darker tan, more like a brown, so I painted them a creme color to brighten it up.
I ordered some decals from an etsy shop called “Leen the Graphics Queen” with our front door numbers.
After applying the numbers and adding a simple DIY wreath, I’m super pleased with the front door now!
The wreath was a simple $4.99 grapevine wreath from Hobby Lobby with a garland of flowers that I hot glued around the wreath. With a coupon for 50% off the garland, the total wreath cost was $15.
Doesn’t this door just say, “Welcome, glad your here!” LOL, I don’t know about that, but I’m pleased and I feel like I accomplished the look I was going for with my new FRONT DOOR DECOR.
What do you guys think about my new FRONT DOOR DECOR?
