Front door color suggestions

fannerAugust 17, 2010

We are finally ready to paint on the front porch. Our entry way is a small vestibule with the outside door being painted and the second door it's original wood state. I have included pictures. I am looking for ideas on what to do with the outside door. THere is a screen that goes over it also, which is removed for the pictures. Would you try to strip the door and restore it to wood, or paint it again? The blue color that it is will not go with our new colors. If painting it is recommended, should it be the same color that we have been using on our window trim? I will include a picture of the blue front door, the vestibule/entry door and the painted side of our house for color refrences. THanks for looking/input!!

Paint or strip is up to you!!! I hate stripping so I usually paint.....
If you paint, I would use a color to pop it- maybe something in the red family to pull out the roof color.
