More Turquoise Front Doors

Can you believe it’s been over a year since I wrote about my Turquoise Front Door?
In honor of this momentous anniversary, I’ve decided to share a few more turquoise lovelies with you. Painting my front door is still one of my most favorite projects and undoubtedly my most popular post to date.
But this past week I was able to help Kristi, a reader of Beyond the Screen Door, achieve her own turquoise front door.
Kristi contacted me several months ago when she realized we lived in the same area. I was able to help Kristi a bit with her boy’s bedroom and then she asked if I’d help her glaze her front door. Kristi painted her door the same Sherwin Williams Nifty Turquoise as my door and I came by the next day and glazed it for her! It was a great collaboration!
My friend, Tricia, also decided to have her front door painted Turquoise. 
 But Tricia took it a step further and had the inside painted as well!
I simply LOVE this way this turned out! Wouldn’t this just make you HAPPY each time you walked by your front door? 
Now, look at this…
Tricia had her island painted the same color! Okay, I’m thinking I may have to steal this idea! Another project to add to my list!
Have you painted anything turquoise lately?

    Sonya, both yours and Tricia’s doors are gorgeous. I love Tricia’s entry way.

    that is my favorite door of all times – you know I painted my dining table turquoise because of that door (boy, do I miss that table) – love having the inside painted as well.

  3. Love the doors! Is turquoise the new red? LOL Y’all did such a great job with the glazing too!! Pretty!!

  4. I just love all these and you know I stole your idea for my front door, but had to use a terra cotta color since turquoise wouldn’t work with my house. I just love the glazing. That is what gives that extra oomph!

  5. Beautiful! I have never liked turquoise, teal, or anything in that color family, but then started seeing it around blog land and it started growing on me somewhat. The other night my walking partner was a bit late for our walk. She had spotted a little table/night stand type thing in her neighbor’s garbage and stopped and picked it up for me. Ooooh it was so ugly! I went to my local Sherwin Williams to get some paint and thought, I don’t really like the turquoise, and I have no money in this, so I will paint it turquoise and if I don’t like it, then no loss. I painted it, Nifty turquoise, distressed and glazed it, and I love it! I have been trying to find a place in my house for it, lol, but it was meant for my juntique store. I will show soon.

    What a cheerful color! I love that it is an unexpected color to see on a front door or kitchen island. Well..unless you live in the southwest part of the country, then you see more colors like that. It is gorgeous, Sonya. Tricia’s turquoise island looks great
    among the other white cabinets.
    have a great day~ Lu

  10. I have always loved your front door, I am using that color with zebra accent’s in my bonus room, I am not finished yet but it is looking gorgeous!
    have a great day,

    How ironic! I just painted my front door this past weekend with Nifty Turquoise and used all the products you suggested in your post from last year. I’m lovin it! Thanks for sharing your friend’s door. I wasn’t sure whether to leave the surrounding wood stained or painted. I’m going back and painting it this weekend! I went crazy with the Nifty Turquoise and painted some table legs too.

    Thank you!
