800px-Loweswarehouse-1
I think we could ALL use some home improvement spending money!
I was lucky to win a gift card from
Our next home improvement project is to paint our front door!
I had to search for these ‘old’ photos so look past the Christmas decorations! And notice the plain….dull….boring…white door!

Our house is truly a Lavender Cottage
….it’s purple! heehee!
DSCN0721_thumb[2]
Many homes in Florida are painted cool pastel colors and ours is a light shade of lavender. So if I spend my home improvement money on paint, what color should I paint it? I have a color in mind! I’ll see it anyone else thinks of it!

Oh I'll get the ball rolling. I do love Lowe's! Having recently painted two main doors, as you know, I understand the challenge of getting the right color. I agonized and finally made my readers do it and then when I arrived with their choice found out it wasn't a true representation. So nothing beats going to the store itself with a paint splotch of your house color and matching up something terrific. Have fun!

Della said...

For your front door...how about a deeper shade of purple??? It would look pretty with your lavender house :)

I do love Lowe's! I could always use an extra $50 to spend there! We just painted our front door, too. It is a nice aqua :D
Have a great day...and thanks for the giveaway!

Great giveaway, Diane! I am a happy follower and I think you should paint your front door........purple :). xo

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I'm already a follower. :)

Not sure what color you'll paint your door. A former neighbor had the entire inside of her house in various shades of purple because that was her favorite color. The only exception was her kitchen, which was NEON yellow that was so bright you could see the color from the street even though the kitchen was in the back of the house.

My advice is to paint the door any color but NEON yellow, and you'll be in good shape. However, I think a sage green to go along with the pastel trend would be a nice contrast to the purple.

marie said...

Hi Diane,
I would love to be included in your giveaway. We're right in the middleof painting so a Lowe's card would be super nice!

I love the lavender color of your house and I'd paint it lavender again BUT maybe you're thinking of a change, so my second guess is yellow!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

Well who could NOT find a way to spend 50.00 at Lowes???? Thanks so much for this great giveaway! I'm already a follower and since I have a purple and green bathroom, I'd say paint the door green. Yellow would be fun too!

Josie said...

I would love to be included in your giveaway, I am now a current follower.

Josie said...

As far as your front door to your beautiful home goes....I think cream would be lovely. It would add a subtle hint of color to the door so that the eye can still focus on the beautiful lavender color :)

bj said...

Woo Hoo..now I would truly love to win this...we need 2 more storm windows to complete our olden house and this money would go a long way for us.

I AM A FOLLOWER..a HAPPY FOLLOWER.
XOXO bj

ShirleyC said...

Now I'm not really sure what color that door should be. I really like black doors and trims on a lot of houses, but I think it might make your entry way a lot darker. However, you have all of that Florida sunshine to brighten it up! LOL

ShirleyC said...

Following Hometalk on FB. Looks interesting!

bj said...

I went to HOMETALK...
oh, and I think the door should be green..love green and lavender together. :))

I'm a happy follower of your blog...Lowes and the orange store that shall remain nameless are my toy stores! Love to shop and love to DIY! Thanks for the chance to win! I love how the houses in Florida and some other warm places are pretty colors. I think the door could be ... a nice yellow. Not neon, but not too washed out, either!

...hope to win!

Karen said...

already a follower... and Hmmm.. the color.. I'mthinking a robins egg blue or a very soft orange. But that's a bit radical. Whatever color you choose, I would extend it out with some accents.. planters on the porch with the same hue, etc. maybe bottom trim on windows...

Vicki said...

Hey there! Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. I'm a follower. I think I would paint the door gray. I can't believe how big that cotton bale is!
