Obviously painting or re-siding the house would be an expensive task. At this point in time that is the lowest on my priority list. The shutters are whatever - I don't like them but I can live with them. The front door, however, was an easy enough project that I could tackle myself... at 37 weeks pregnant... on the cheap.
We landed on Behr Cool Mint and decided to buy sample sizes of it since we didn't need a quart of paint. Since we were going from dark to extremely light, we bought 2 samples at just under $5/each. We probably could have gotten away with one sample and done this project for $5, but better safe than sorry.
And you guys? I squeal like a child on Christmas every time I see my front door now:
