I finally did it! I painted my door and it looks awesome! I took advantage of Sherwin Williams 40% off paint sale a couple of weeks ago and picked up some BM Stratton Blue. I was inspired by the Cottage & Vine front door a year ago when Rene originally posted about it, but was a little too nervous to go painting anything on the exterior of my home. Needless to say I finally mustered up the courage and went for it and now I'm kicking myself for not having done it much sooner. It look so good. Of course now I need to finish sprucing up the exterior of our home because it is looking kinda shabby in comparison. I think that'll be our fall home project this year.
Before: Last Summer (this was the best before pic I could find)
The Incident that took place... lets just say that a certain two year old that was supposed to be napping came downstairs while I was in the kitchen and decided to paint the floor... thank goodness for rubbing alcohol.
Isn't it so pretty!?! Now all of that brass really needs to be changed. I see some ORB in my future. Or should I go with satin nickel? The light fixtures also need to be updated... we've got some serious mid-90's going on out front. But, progress is slowly being made.
