TUESDAY FINDS: DRESS UP YOUR ADDRESS BY PAINTING YOUR FRONT DOOR

Did you know that dreaming about a door represents new opportunities and change? Hey, I’m no dream expert, but maybe it’s actually your front door trying to tell you “Opportunity is knocking and I’m ready for a change!”

Giving your front door some paint love is one of my favourite ways to create a first impression and make a lasting design statement. It also brings new life to your home. In fact, a big, beautiful splash of curb appeal at the entryway can lift up the whole exterior of your house, drawing more attention to cool but often-overlooked architectural details – not to mention those adorable flowers you spent the weekend planting out front.

Like I always say, you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can judge an awesome home by the colour of its front door.

While you might be hesitant to consider painting your siding, if it’s done right, painting it will give you up to 10 years of stunning results. Most homeowners are motivated to paint their vinyl siding because the colour has become dated.
