Painting an Interior Front Door- Simple and Stunning!

It’s been a long time since my last post!  I really underestimated how much energy moving takes.  The last few weeks have been filled with unpacking, cleaning, trying to fit old furniture into new spaces, and searching for new furniture to fill up this large house!  Whew, I am exhausted.   Of course that doesn’t stop my brain from swimming with style ideas (chevron or striped curtains? warm or cool colors?) every time I try to sleep. 

One thing I am sure of is our interior front door- I am absolutely, without a doubt, painting it!  I’ve decided that I’m going to go with a lovely, possibly robin’s egg (Tiffany’s anyone?), light blue.  I think.  

First, my sad little front door when we first moved in:

And how it looks now, after a fresh coat of paint and our beautiful laminate flooring:

I’d actually never heard of painting the interior of a front door until I stumbled across these lovelies below.  I don’t think I’ve ever been in a house with a painted interior front door (maybe I live a sheltered life?), but it’s such a simple little thing and it makes a huge impact.

I love this yellow one:

This black one is so classic and chic:

 And finally, this little pale blue number, which pretty much leaves me speechless:
Sigh. So pretty, and I love the decor of the room.  Maybe a little too feminine for me to get the husband on board.  Perhaps for my home office though...filing this one away for the future:)

In the meantime, I'm so excited to try something like one of these on my own front door!


  1. what a great idea!! I wonder if my apt complex management would think so as well! Better to ask forgiveness than permission :)

  2. If you show them one of these pictures first how could they say no? :) Seriously though, our last landlord was really cool about letting us paint a little, as long as he approved the color. So you never know!
