My Outdoor Aqua Door

I think my house has a personality disorder.  No amount of therapy will convince it that it's an old farmhouse and not a cottage on the beach. Mom says, "BAHAHAHA".
 Check out this before.  Can I get a wow?  Yeah.  Wow.  

 Let's get a closer look at this piece of fine craftsmanship.  


So let me break it down for ya.  Cuz this was CHEAP. 

Gallon of gray oil based cement paint - garage sale for 50 cents.
Aqua exterior paint - ummmm $15?  Can't remember, but I used it on the front door too, and I few other places.
Rag wreath - $1 (Dollar Tree wreath with scraps of fabric.)
Door handle - spray painted with hammered silver Rustoleum paint.  Had that on hand.
Rug - $12 from Lowes.  Heart Attack - I bought something BRAND NEW.  And not on sale!  
Window boxes - Free (post on that soon!) 

Pin It

And there you have it.  TTFN!  (Ta ta for now, in case you're not a Winnie The Pooh fan.)

  18. Your aqua door is gorgeous! Actually, the whole front of your house is amazing...definitely looks like it belongs on the beach! I just wanted to let you know that I used one of your pictures in my front door color inspiration post - credited of course. It's such a great shade of aqua that I had to include it!
