DIY Boxwood and Succulent Wreath + The Creative Corner

Happy Memorial Day weekend to my US friends!  I’m writing to you from a lounge chair outside by the lake and currently asking myself why I can’t write from here every day?!  As we welcome in summertime I have the cutest little DIY project to share with you today.

Soft Pink Front Door

Tell me – what is your favorite color for a front door?  A bold red?  Or a deep black?  Our front door was a dark gray color for the last couple of years, but lately I’ve seen the pink door trend surfacing on Pinterest and finally decided it was time to give it a try for myself.    After picking up some samples of pink paint at Lowes I painted a few squares on the door and left them for a few days.

In the end I decided to go with the color that was more of a soft pink, a blush, and it was just what I was looking for.  Not a bold pop of color, but instead one that was soft and quietly welcoming.  (The fact that I used quiet to describe a paint color tells you just how much I crave quiet of any kind in our house.  Tell me someone else can relate?)

The final result?  Exactly what I wanted.  I am so happy with this paint color!

The color is Sweetened Plum (3016) from the HGTV line for Sherwin Williams at Lowes.  I used primer on my door first, so it only took one heavy coat of pink paint and then a few touch up spots, which was all done with one sample jar of paint.  So for less than $4 I painted my door!

Thoughts on the pink door?  It’s spurring on more changes on the small front porch space so stay tuned for more tutorials and a fun reveal!
