A Collection of Turquoise Doors

Beyond the Screen Door Turqoise Door

My Turquoise Front Door

It’s been almost three years since I painted my front door. At the time I never could have imagined what an impact this one little door would make.

Since that time I’ve received the most amazing emails and comments of how this door has inspired others to take the challenge of a bright and colorful entrance for their homes.

A few months ago, I wrote a post asking anyone who would like to share their turquoise, aqua or blue door here on Beyond the Screen Door to send me an email with pictures and any other details they’d like to share.

This post is dedicated to these brave and inspiring DIYer’s!


Tricia – Not too long after I painted my door, my friend Tricia took her love of turquoise to an even higher level by painting her front door…both inside and out…as well as her kitchen island. Stunning!  See more of Tricia’s doors here. 


Gina – My sister in law, Gina LOVES bright and fun colors. Her beautiful home is a testament to her love of color!  Her front doors were painted aqua before my door was painted turquoise but I wanted to share her doors in this collection as well.  This photo was from Christmas a few years ago. See more of Gina’s doors here.


Roycie – Roycie was one of the first readers of this blog to send me photos of her door. Literally a Beyond the Screen Door inspired Screen Door!

Rachel – Rachel’s email was so sweet that I’m going to let her tell you about her door!

Hi Sonya! 
I just wanted to tell you how much I genuinely appreciate your blog.  All of your ideas and creations are absolutely amazing! 
However, what keeps me coming back to your website literally on a DAILY basis was your turquoise front door.  I have been looking at your pictures for months and wondering if the turquoise door would work well on my house. 
This weekend, I decided to bite the bullet, and man, I am so glad I did!  It really makes the door pop, and I think it makes my flowers look that much more vibrant!  I posted pictures on my facebook, and I have received nothing but glowing compliments on the color and the ‘vintage feel’.  I of course linked your blog in the comments section because I had people asking all day about how to do it.  I think you are starting a ‘turquoise door craze’ across the country, and you don’t even know it!!! 
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate the fabulous pictures and the directions.  I don’t have a Sherwin Williams close to me, so I went to Lowe’s and bought Valspar peacock blue outdoor paint, then used Valspar transluscent color glaze over the top.  The hardest part was replacing the door handle.  I had the exact same door handle, except it was gold, and I definitely wanted the black handle that you show.  I am LOVING IT!!!


I love the way the Peacock Blue pops against the white trim! Great job, Rachel!

Kelly – painted her front door Benjamin Moore’s Blue Spa.

1-Kelly SCNot only did she paint her front door and her shutters but the porch floor as well! It’s gorgeous!

1-Mark L

Mark – One of the best parts of this project was getting to see all the different door styles painted a similar color. Mark’s gorgeous front door has a wonderful craftsman feel with the leaded glass. Mark told me his neighbor’s love his newly painted front door! Great job, Mark, I do too!

1-Brenda SC (2)

Brenda – Brenda wrote that she was ready for a brighter color after having a “Chinese red” door for years. After painting her front door this vibrant turquoise her neighbors would drive by and say “Hey love that front door-think I will paint mine”!  She said even the husbands love it!  Love her flower garden as well. Beautiful!

Not only did she paint her front door but she added a touch of turquoise to her planters as well. Great idea, Brenda!

The (not always) Lazy W

Marie – Marie over at The (not always) Lazy W is planning to paint her exterior kitchen door turquoise but in the meantime she started with this little thrifted dresser. For Marie, I imagine painting is delegated as a Fall or Winter project. Between her garden, her bees, her animals (including a buffalo) this wonderfully funny and busy lady doesn’t have much spare time in the Spring and Summer!


Tammy – Tammy also decided to paint both the inside and outside of her front door. After painting the inside SW Nifty Turquoise she and her husband decided they preferred a greener turquoise for the exterior. She kept the Nifty Turquoise for the inside but painted the outside Pantone’s Pool Green. They used a black glaze over each color with awesome results!

Janell Before Glaze (2)

Janell – Last but not least is Janell’s turquoise doors. Janell was hoping to paint the front doors of her new home turquoise. She put a comment on Facebook along with a photo of my door asking for help.  A mutual friend saw the photo and put us in touch! Here you can see the doors painted Nifty Turquoise without the glaze.

Janell’s husband primed and painted the doors SW Nifty Turquoise…

And I finished the job with glaze. Aren’t the double doors just amazing in all their turquoise glory? 🙂

    All the doors are so pretty! It’s amazing how much a beautiful color makes the porch so much more inviting in every example. Way to go Sonya for inspiring others and way to go all the brave painters!

    Each door is beautiful and color makes such a difference. We have a white house with blue trim and a bright red door. The door just pops against the white.

    I particularly like the design of your door too with the low windows.

    Thanks for sharing such fun doors.

  5. Nana Diana says:

    I love the beautiful doors and I LOVE that you painted your own door turquoise. I think it is just such a fun and unexpected pop of color. You were certainly inspired hwen you painted that! xo Diana

  6. Love the doors, such great inspiration photos. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  7. Oh, wow, what a wonderful collection of turquoise doors!

  8. Judy says:

    We bought our current home in 1999. Front door was burgundy and I didn’t like it so my husband painted it teal. I should have painted it turquoise!!! Thanks for posting all the pictures of these beautiful and colorful doors! Now, I am going to look for ideas for our storm door that is a required “must” here in Minnesota.

  9. Diana says:

    I enjoyed looking at all the different doors.Great job to everyone.

  10. I just marvel at the doors painted in the gorgeous aqua shades….thanks for presenting all these magnificent doors today…such inspiration to us all!!

  11. I love this, Sonya! What fun to see all of the different turquoise doors! I’ll have to photography my sister’s sometime. It’s turquoise and she gets compliments from the neighbors all the time!

  12. Jessica Sala says:

    Love these! My favorite color!

  13. Fun fun fun!! This makes me so happy, and NOT just because you were so sweet to let me play along with just my desk. LOL
    Your turquoise door MIGHT have been the first thing here that I fell in love with. It is so warm and welcoming, so fanciful, so positive about being part of a happy, stylish home. I just cannot WAIT to get mine painted!!
    I am also having a lot of fun browsing these other super cute homes, so thank you for the introductions!
    xoxo Hugs to you Sonya!

  14. Betty says:

    Thanks to you, I also have a turquoise screen door which I truly love. It pops against the sand colored house with white trim – am now making shutters to paint the same color. Thanks again. (I painted it last August but it’s rather a crappy door so didn’t submit it.)

  15. I would never have thought of this color for a front door-but I adore it! Thanks for sharing this idea.

  16. This is so fun! These colors are so beautiful…If my house wasn’t already a blue green color I would paint my door this color! Come link up to Centerpiece Wednesday and share this post with us.

  17. I am loving everything turquoise right now too. Those doors are beautiful. I recently did a post on turquoise and gold inspirations. I’m also having a current giveaway on my blog for a vintage inspired handmade clutch!
