Life Love Larson: Yellow Front Door

Yellow Front Door

My sister and I both recently painted our front doors.  I will post pictures of mine later in the week, but here is what my sister did with hers.  The original door, when she moved in 5 years ago, was painted a dark mushroom color (same as the house).  She then painted it a reddish color several years ago, and recently decided she needed a change.  I suggested yellow, or more of a mustard color, and she jumped on board.  She looked at several paint chips, made a pretty quick decision, and went for it!  I absolutely love the color and looks so great with the exterior of the house!

This is such an easy way to update the exterior of your house.  It really takes no time at all, and the results are so dramatic!

Yellow is such a hard color because it can start to look McDonald’s(ish) very easily.  This color has just enough brown in it to make it elegant and muted, but it still packs a punch.
Color is “Golden Leaf” by Behr (Home Depot).  Sheen is semi-gloss.

  1. WOW! That door seems to have the Midas’ golden touch. The vibrant yellow color is so relaxing to the eyes! You and your sister deserves two thumbs up for doing such an impressive job painting that door.
