Last week I shared with you the before and after photos of our freshly painted exterior. We are still relishing in the newness of living in a house that you can actually see from the road. It still surprises me when I drive up and makes me grin like a goofball when I turn into the driveway. The brick is not the only thing that received a makeover. We also just finished a front porch update.
I knew I wanted something bold for the front door. I narrowed it down to two choice from Modern Masters new Front Door Paint. They have an APP for iPhone and Android that lets you try out the new front door color before you commit. I opted to make it a crowdsourced decision by taking it to a vote on Facebook and Instagram. (If you aren’t following us on social media this is the kind of epic stuff you are missing.) Fortunate, a bold lime green color was the winner.
Why Modern Masters Front Door Paint you might ask? Well for one thing, Modern Masters has a history of putting out gorgeous paint. We have used their metallics and reactive paints on lots of projects with awesome results. The Front Door Paint covers in two coats, Dries Quickly to a Satin finish and NEVER fades. Never fades? SOLD!!!
Here is our front porch before the update.
And after the update.
So then I thought we were done. I even had professional photos taken. But Brooks had another idea. He wanted to stencil the front porch. We had this amazing stencil from Royal Design Studios blown up to an 18″ repeat. He painted the floor with Sherwin Williams porch and floor paint. The base color is 7045 Intellectual Gray and the stencil color is 7028 Incredible White.
And then it didn’t feel quite finished. I texted my friend Brandy a photo and she replied back immediately, “You need an amazing vintage elephant stool between the two chairs.” And so I did. And then it was finished.
And then I scheduled another photo shoot with the amazing Geinger Hill.
I think we are on to something here. Even Brian Patrick Flynn liked my photo on Instagram. He is my current design hero.
