A Front Door Makeover

Every year I look forward to making a new wreath for my front door. 
So when I saw a cute sunhat in a catalog 
I knew what I wanted to do. 
And it was the incentive I needed to finally paint
 my front door Aqua.

I had been slowly adding aqua to the porch over the past two 
Summers and this would be the icing on the cake.

Until I started painting and had that dreaded "what was I thinking?" moment!

Unfortunately, right after I started painting the weather turned bad 
and this was the scene from the road for several days.

But it was all good once I got the second coat on, painted the numbers 
and old doorbell black and hung my new "wreath".

I came back to edit this post because after I posted it, 
something just didn't feel right to me on my sun hat wreath. 
My sister graciously told me that the bow is too small....duh! 
So I took it down and completely changed it up. 
I played with the flowers a little more and here is the final (?) door wreath.

My newly painted door ties in all the other Aqua accents I already had.

That's my new bunny I found on sale at TJ Maxx

The vintage Gnome Welcome is new this year.

As is the vintage drawer planter. I am waiting for the Geranium
to fill in to get the full effect!

Here is the Before.....

and the After....

I am happy with it. My daughters were skeptical when they saw the door
in that first picture but  now they like it too.

Of course now I have to get working on fixing the old issues (like the ivy
on the siding and the crumbling steps) but somehow that Aqua
door makes those things disappear for now.

What do you think?
