The Colorful-Door Trend Is Huge — & So Easy To Do Yourself

They say first impressions are everything. It makes sense, then, that you'd want the first impression people have of your house or apartment — the front door — to be a positive one. The front entrance tells a story about your taste and style.

We've caught the fever ourselves and scouted around for bright ideas to inspire our own DIY projects — in all the colors of the rainbow, including the oh-so-current Ultra Violet.
