Front Door

My DIY project this weekend was a simple one. Ya gotta love those! It was definitely much simpler than redecorating a bedroom or doing a living room design  or even searching for master bedroom ideas and only took  about 5  minutes of my time. It was the perfect spruce up in between planting and spending time in the garden~ which is where you'll find me much of the time now that Spring has arrived.

This basket has been on my front door for a few months now ever since the Christmas wreath came down. The red basket is really pretty, but it really needed a little changing up and I didn't want to spend any money buying or making a new wreath or door decoration. 

No Problem! I just happen to have a few cans of spray paint in the garage. How about you?

Avocado was my color of choice and there was just enough left in the can to do the job.

Here's what it looks like now...

This is exactly what it needed.

Gotta love a Spring change up for ZERO money!

Now on to the rest of the front porch...

Did you work on a project this weekend or did you just have a little R & R? 


  1. I love the new color and love the hydrangeas in the basket. Well done!


  2. of my favorite colors!

  3. Wow, nice choice of colour! Love the flowers, too.

    Great job!

  4. Pretty color Pam! Your basket looks great!! Gotta love spray paint!

  5. What a neat door decoration. I love the color of the basket! You did a wonderful job! :)


  6. The basket looks amazing. I really need to do something for my front door. It looks so bare. It was in the 90's so I didn't work in the yard, but I did work in the house getting Spring going. Enjoy the Spring weather. Hugs, Marty

  7. Yes! I did spray paint too. An antique planter... I'll try to do the post on it later this week. yep, spray paint is the best!

  8. Wow!!! You are so right! That was the perfect touch!

  9. Yay for spray paint and I love that very long basket Pam. We planted so many plants I am in recovery today and maybe tomorrow:-0

  10. That looks so lovely Pam! The new color is perfectly Spring-y! :-)

  12. Beautiful color and a lovely look for your front door.


  13. The new color looks great on your door. Mine is black too, and the lighter shades seem to look better for me as well =) Happy Spring!

  14. Great idea to paint it. I made one too but with a metal vase. I'm looking forward to changing the flowers through each season. I have lime green hydrangea on mine with a sprig of spring buds and greenery. You did a great job! Visiting from BNOTP.
