Spring = Curb Appeal

Happy Spring Everyone!!!

My house is in desperate need of curb appeal. I've been wanting to go the black shutters red door route and I've decided it will happen this weekend.

I have plenty of paint left over from many other projects. So, the goal is to not spend more then $40 on flowers so get started.

I have so many visions in my head. Black door, black shutters. Red door, black shutters.

Which is the prettiest?

But get this; I never thought of painting the storm door and that was mostly my delay. I kept thinking of ways to replace it w/ out spending $300 on a door. Therefore, I will paint it.

Tomorrow I have a pretty big interview and I'm uber excited and scared though this change will help me find my way to Boston in the for late 2013. Whooeee! But tonight I will remove the shutters and maybe prime them and put some equity into the house. My goal is to be done by June. #DreamsDoComeTrue

Painted storm door. How purdy!
Some Feng Shui suggestions:
The colors of the door should reflect the compass direction it faces according to the Five Elements and/or be in balance with the elemental properties of the energies of the sector where the door is located. I have listed associated colors below.
  • South (Fire) = Reds, pink, burgundy.
  • Southwest (Earth) = Yellows or browns.
  • West (Metal) = White, silver, copper or gold.
  • Northwest (Metal) = White, silver, copper or gold.
  • North (Water) = Blacks or blues.
  • Northeast (Earth) = Yellows or browns.
  • East (Wood) = Greens.
  • Southeast (Wood) = Greens. 
My door faces North. Red or Blue. Hmmm, we'll see.

BTW, this is how I'm spring cleaning this year. 

Size matters!

Thank you for visiting!!
Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)
