Purple Door

I want to get the outside of the house spruced up a bit.  I'm not sure exactly whey it happened but I'm pretty sure the front of our hosue looks worse now then when we bought it!  Mostly because of the weeds.  Whatever the reason I try to be the sort of person who takes care of things and keeps them nice, so I'm on a mission to fix up the outside of the house this spring.

I really wanted to lay new bark and get rid of the weeds, but the internet says that this isn't a good time for that so instead we did a bit of painting.  I love it when people have a front door that really pops.  A color that isn't anywhere else on the house.  A lot of people do red but we have a green house and I don't really want it to look like we decorated for Christmas so we went with purple.  You can't see it in the picture but it looks extra nice because we have purple lilac trees in the front yard.
We also repainted all the white trim and we did the shutters a darker color.  I really like how it turned out.  I know purple isn't everyones favorite color, and it might not appeal to all buyers.  But at some point I need to make the house my own and decorate according to what I (and my family) like.

Next on the list is new gutters, and front porch, then when it stops raining so much we can work on the yard!

Definitely decorate your home for you. Don't worry about future buyers. I love your door. I want to paint our front door too. Brown is so boring!
