Last year I painted my foyer light grey. The look was fresh and clean, and the color worked well with my green living room walls, but it was a bit too boring for my taste. After mulling over the idea of repainting the foyer and stairwell to punch up the color, I took the easy way out and painted the front door instead. It was way less time consuming than painting the walls–it took about an hour from start to finish–and much cheaper, too.
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this solution sooner, I’m just glad that I did. I love end result. The light blue paint adds interest to the foyer and picks up the color of my living room chairs. Here’s a picture of the front door before my mini makeover. Which color do you prefer, the white or the blue?
