Hello everyone! I’m excited to bring you today’s post featuring a fresh, bright spring entryway with country cottage style. 

Let’s begin with a front door makeover!


Here is our front door as it was installed a few years ago. Funny thing, this front door is how we came to know the previous homeowners… Matt was hired to repair the door frame, install the door, and replace some studs in the foyer. Now it’s time to add our personal touch and paint this door!

Matt sanded, primed, taped, and applied the first coat of paint. Only a few touch up spots and the tape can come off! Paint is such a great way to freshen and give a space a face – lift!

With a fresh new door a welcoming, spring-y entry would be just the ticket to bring it all together!

To the Shaker peg rail Matt made I added the garden hat “wreath” from last year, and my own gardening hat. How nice this peg rail has been for uses like this! Here is Peter rabbit who has made appearances both at the Beatrix Potter tea party and in the Spring hutch decor last year. This bunny is popular!

Above the buffet hangs the lavender wreath from which I pulled extra lavender springs to create a vintage inspired French bouquet


I love how the door turned out and after living with it for a few days it seems it has always been this color! I really like the spring green next to the orange-y red brick.

Thank you for joining me today as we gave our entry a facelift, I hope you found some inspiration!

Until next time take care,

  1. Very nicely done. The door looks great, and I love the buffet piece and scarf. We are in the middle of remodeling our main bathroom. It’s been a long job as we completely gutted the room and started over. Beth is doing most of the work, and we have to work around her health issues, but I am slowly seeing my design come to life, and it is very exciting.

    • Hi Mrs. Corbett,
      Thank you! I understand the excitement in seeing a vision coming to reality (we are in the middle of a bathroom remodel as well) – happy remodeling!

  2. I look forward to your decorating ideas. You have great taste and everything looks beautiful.
    I love your front door

    • Hello Mrs. Rasbeary,

  3. The newly painted green door adds a refreshing color to the front entry. It’s amazing what a difference to the appearance of a home painting the front door can make!

    • Hi Joanna,
      I agree, the dramatic transformation of paint is is wonderful for a quick, fresh, custom look! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Your door is green! I love it! I’m a big fan of fun colored doors. It turned out fantastic. And the spring decor looks adorable. Glad you still find a place for Pater rabbit!
