I am usually a pretty conservative person, however every once in a while we're allowed to do something a little extravagant right?? My front door was needing a new paint job and frankly,
I was getting a little bored of the brown. . .this door needed a little pop :)
Here's how it originally looked, and I really liked it. . .but when things
begin to seem a little dull in my life, I pull out the paint and get to work.
Last week, while strolling through Gardner Village, I spied this
aqua door that looked very much like mine. . .and I was smitten.
Paint rarely scares me but something about painting my front door this color
made me REALLY nervous!
Oh, but it's such a cute door!
After holding up a few samples, I decided that blue would compliment
the colors on my house. . .so, I went for it. . .GULP!
Here's the color I came up with. . .it's a combination of two colors I had
in my garage and it turned out just the way I wanted.
I love it when that happens :)
This door had alot of detail that I decided to do a French Country
Overcoating technique on, which gave it a worn & timeless appeal. . .
Next, it recieved an oil glaze rub down to polish off that
old world style I was going for. . .something that looks like it was pulled
right out of a vintage cottage in the french countryside. . .
Now this door is one that says
WELCOME HOME :)
