The morning was so beautiful when I woke up, I decided it's the PERFECT day for doing a quick little project I've had in mind...
PAINT THE DOOR
I'm a big believer in the mood effects of color and, one thing's for certain--what is greeting you immediately as you approach your house is a door. Now, everyone knows this about the FRONT door, And all of you reading this certainly have a happy, welcoming front entry door.
But, that's for guests, right? You usually come in through a garage or back door. But, it's still YOUR welcoming to your home. So, match your color to enhance your mood.
My project today was to paint the entry from the outside into our "mud room" where I find myself going in and out several times a day. I also just placed a little bistro table and chairs outside that entry door so an accent door will actually ground my personal wine bar and enhance that mood, too.
So, here goes, I continued with the same accent color as interior doors in the mudroom and the same accent color as my front door. And I am using a high gloss because it's super durable and easy to wash. Another plus is--while I have the paint out, I can inspect my other doors and touch up nicks and scratches of wear (and dogs.)
- clean, then prep surface with a little light sandpaper
- trim out with a small brush
- then paint and let dry
It's SUCH a happy difference from boring white, isn't it? Now, get out and spend literally under an hour of your physical time for a happy ending...or should I say a "Happy entry every time"?
