See how you can create Modern Farmhouse Front door Decor with a light colored door, number decals, and a simple wreath.

I meant to change our modern farmhouse front door decor 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! 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 and front door decor was not in terrible condition, but not the modern farmhouse style I wanted.

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 from Pinterest that inspired my new Farmhouse style 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!

Modern farmhouse front door decor Style

  • Light and bright door colors
  • Number signs
  • Simple but pretty wreaths

I was going to try to replicate these ideas.

Here is a before pic:

the door BEFORE the modern farmhouse front door update

Like I said before, not bad, but a lot of brown (this was a theme of our builder grade 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….

Painting the door a soft blue for a more Modern Farmhouse Front Door style

painting the door blue for a modern farmhouse style

I started by painting the door blue, but 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.

Adding number decals for a modern farmhouse style front door

I ordered some decals from an etsy shop called “Leen the Graphics Queen” with our front door numbers. I love how “homey they make the front door look.”

Isn’t it funny how graphics and words make us think, “come on in and stay a while!”

Maybe that’s just me, but I feel like everything is more welcoming with signs. Either way, decor with words and signs is a huge farmhouse style trend.

Adding a simple DIY wreath

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 you’re 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 farmhouse style FRONT DOOR DECOR.


What do you guys think about my new front door style?

  1. […] First thing we did when we moved in was get rid of that burgundy! I painted the front door and added a few modern farmhouse touches with the home numbers. You can see all about my modern farmhouse front door makeover HERE. […]

  2. Loving this! I have been wanting to put this on my door for a while. Thanks for linking up with us at Family Joy Blog Link Up party. Hope we see you next week.

    Love it! My front door reads, “theres no place like home” and the back door says, “home is where the heart is”!

    Three years ago I painted my front door a pretty blue called A Breath of Fresh air. I love it. Its getting worn out now though and I am redoing the back deck so I am painting it a new blue/teal colour. Blue looks lovely on a door, and yours is wonderful.

    Your door looks awesome. Simple but makes a great statement.
    Thanks for sharing your wonderful posts at Over The Moon Party.
    See you next week.

  7. Beautiful home, front porch, front door and wreath. Like that you kept wreath simple, not too much dΓ©cor on it. Painting columns helped also, made difference in how light front of house looks. Love the #’s on middle of door, nice adornment for door.
    Looking at your wreath I realized I have some garland similar to yours so just need to hunt up grapevine wreath and go with it. Our front door is white but I would love to paint it forest green to go with exterior trim. Hubs not onboard with all the great ideas I see on blog land so have to slowly change his mind and get him to buy the paint. Want to get him to make some simple shutters for windows also.
    Hope you had wonderful Mother’s Day

    Such a cute idea! πŸ™‚

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks:

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  9. Yes. Your entrance looks so nice, now. Love the door color, the lettering and numbers, and the wreath. It all says “Welcome.”

  10. The door looks so much better! You really did a great job lightening it up. Have to wonder about all that brown that builders were using around 2010. I loved it then, but now it is too dated. I have a suggestion for you: paint a couple of layers of the paint you mixed up on a stir stick, write the info on the back of it and which room you used it in, and put a hole on one end and put it on a key ring or chain. Then if you need more of it, take it to Home Depot so they can use their computer to color match it. I’ve had great success with HD’s color matching. And, when you sell the house it’s a great thing to leave the new owners. I’m your newest follower.

  11. I think that front door color is perfect! Love the new address numbers and wreath too. I think it IS happy and says come on in! Great job.

  12. I need to paint my front door…desperately! Love your inspiration and your new welcoming look. πŸ™‚ #HomeMattersParty

  13. I thin that color is gorgeous. It flows with the brick color but also holds it’s own. It looks great! Thanks so much for joining the DI & DI Link Party, hope you had as much fun as we did having you.
