From the blogger: "Does your home have a bland and boring door within its walls? I do. Mine leads to a little powder room off our combined mudroom-laundry room. A cream-colored door in a cream-colored room flanked by a white washing machine and dryer on one side and a white mudroom cubby system on the other. I don't know about you but b-o-r-i-n-g. Learn how to easily add a pop of color to an otherwise dull door and instantly add interest."

DIY Project Instructions


  1. If the door needs a fresh coat of paint, do so first before adding the color block.

  2. Using a ruler, determine where and how big of a color block you want.

  3. I lined up the painter's tape with my pencil line.

  4. Start painting your contrasting color block.
