Looking for some inspiration for your next outdoor project? We've collected a few of our favorite DIY front door makeovers to help you think out of the box and create a look that suits your personal style flawlessly without breaking the bank. Check them out below.
It doesn't take much to make a new statement with your home's curb appeal. If you already have the basics in place, a simple coat of pant and a few new plants and handleset will allow the look and feel of your home to transition with your personal style. Ann of On Sutton Place did just that with this front door makeover. Read more about her curb appeal journey.
Like many homeowners, you may find it difficult to complete big projects when obligations with family and friends get in the way. In this blog post, Chelsea of Someday I'll Learn takes a step back to admire the little details that have made a big impact in their home remodeling journey, starting with this front door makeover featuring a Schlage Century Style handleset in Polished Nickel.
It doesn't always take a full exterior makeover to catch someone's eye. Sometimes, all you need is a new front door with bold coat of paint to be the star of the show. Susan of Living Rich on Less creates a welcoming and fun entry with this front door transformation. Find tips on her painting process and how to save big when purchasing a new door.
If purchasing a new door is out of budget for your project, then simply refinishing and updating the hardware can go a long way in giving your door new life. Susan is at it again with this side door makeover where she salvaged the character of the existing door and created a polished look with some new hardware, paint and a good cleaning. We love that her choice of Aged Bronze finish coordinates with the hardware she chose for the front door above.
Another easy way to switch things up to make a statement throughout the seasons is to coordinate the color of your door and hardware with accessories and plants. Lowe's shows you how to do just that by taking the same front porch and creating five different looks to go from spring in to summer. Find out more from Lowe's.
