Front Porch Mini-Makeover

Front Porch Mini-Makeover

I spotted this photo with these gorgeous red doors (Benjamin Moore Red Rock) and knew immediately that I wanted warm red doors in our house.

I headed to Benjamin Moore to check out paint strips. Our space doesn’t have as much natural light as the inspiration photo so I went with a shade lighter–Benjamin Moore Hot Apple Spice. It’s very similar to a Sherwin Williams color that we used in our Seattle house. If you have a Sherwin Williams nearby check out Fireweed.

After painting the front door I didn’t love it. I decided to live with it for a while. It wasn’t until I painted the storm/screen door that I finally loved the transformation.

Our front porch went from this:

front porch 1 hometownperch.com

to this:
Painted door hometownperch.com

Painted door after hometownperch.com

The next step will be to paint house numbers on the door. Something like this:
Numbered door 2

or this:

  1. I LOVE IT! It looks great! I think my favorite doors will always be red and black. I think they are no fail, and you did choose a great color of red!
