Easy Mid-Century Inspired Pink Front Door Makeover

Just a quick update on Melodramaville today! I painted our front door a peachy pink (Peach Punch by Valspar to be exact) and added some trim molding for a little architectural detail. 

Here’s what I started with:

A basic white door. I originally wanted to do something with more diamond shapes, but I found out while measuring for them that A) math is hard, and B) my doorbell and peephole are about an inch and a half off center. Pink Door MakeoverI compromised with one diamond in the middle and I actually prefer the simplicity of it now, so it worked out. Mid-Century DIY Pink Door with MoldingI didn’t have the proper tools so the molding was a pain to cut, but I made it work. I just used basic trim from the hardware store. It’s something like $3 for an 8ft piece. I used heavy duty double stick mounting tape on the backs of the pieces to adhere it to the door. I rent so tape was the best and easiest solution and it’s holding up great so far.DIY Mid-Century Inspired Door Trim
I love the color it brings to this corner! Oh and it’s the same pink I used on this IKEA Hack bar cabinet which is right across from the door so it all ties together well. Mid-Century Pink Front Door with MoldingJust a few more things to finish up in here until it’s all done!
