Front Door Makeover...Olive is in the House!

Pin It

How do you like my wack-a-doodle crazy color on the front door? I don't know what's going on with me lately. Definitely feeling more adventurous and loving it! First a tufted faux fur ottoman and now an olive colored door? Such a rebel I am!

The door color was inspired by the olive colored pillows I found last spring at TJMaxx. Believe it or not, the paint chip matched the pillows perfectly. It turned out a bit brighter than I expected...probably due to the reflection of the sunlight on the door.


Here are a couple befores and afters...


The door definitely has a fresher feel to it.


The peephole got a new color, too...digging it!
The door looks a bit more yellow than it actually is in this photo.
The sun was shining brightly!

  2. I love it. You are definitely walking on the wild side, but what better way to do that than in a front door colour. It will look fantastic at Christmas too (always an important consideration for me in selecting my door colour).

  4. Looks like an uplifting spring color. And don't we all need a little boost of spring green over the long winter! It will look stylish with a red-bowed Christmas wreath.

  7. I like the rebel in you. I wish I could find a bit of that in me. I've been wanting to paint our doors and narrowed it down to 3 sort of safe colors and can't even commit to one of those!

  8. Love it-It is fresh and fun and definitely makes a statment about the person behind it. One that is not afraid to be a bit of an individualist-Perfect! xo Diana

  9. Very fresh and certainly not predictable. Love it and I agree that it will look great at Christmas, fresh and modern for Spring, but still work the rest of the year. You can't beat a colour from nature.
