Entry Door Makeover

When I completed my Stairway Gallery Wall, one thing that stuck out was my Peach Front Entry door. This Entry Door Makeover was completed in just one afternoon!

Entry Door Makeover

One thing our home lacks is a formal foyer. When you come in our front door, you immediately walk into an open living space, our den.

We had painted the walls and trim, but that front door needed a makeover!

It was the last of the original paint from when we purchased our house and needed to go!

We were given this gorgeous antique Hall Tree from Trent’s mother. It was in his  house while he was growing up where he recalls sitting in the chair and pretending to be Conan. How cute is that?!  

It had been sitting in a storage shed for almost a decade, so when they offered it to us, we were so excited to bring it home, but it looked awful next to that peach door! It stuck out like a sore thumb, but I knew I didn’t want to paint it white.  


So, we used the leftover paint from our Farmhouse Kitchen Remodel.   It is Sherwin Williams Dovetail SW 7018.   Here’s how I paint my door to get the flawless lines.

I follow the numbers and start with the inside panels.  I finish off with the long side panels making sure to keep all the paint lines neat and straight.

Trent took off the weathered brass knob and deadbolt and spray painted them with Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Before and After

Now it ties in beautifully with my Stairway Gallery Wall and I LOVE my new hall tree.

I have already watched as my boys mimicked their father  playing king on the throne!

The tradition continues.

And now I have my Entryway!

This Entry Door Makeover is a quick and easy DIY that you can tackle in just one afternoon!

Do you live with an ugly dated door? Here is how we brightened our Entryway with a DIY Glass Door Insert. It's scary to think you can cut a hole in your front door, but look at this amazing transformation!
