Ok, so I need a painting project. I bought paint for the headboard and didn’t use it for that and I’ve been thinking of what I could use it on. Well, I’ve decided I’ll still use it on the headboard, but I need to figure out how to make a stencil big enough for it and not drive myself crazy with having to reposition it! I don’t know how people can stencil on big walls and stuff!! It would drive me insane!!
Anyway, so I’ve been putting that off. I have a friend who painted the inside of her door turquoise in December and before that I found this beautiful blue door on pinterest. Isn’t it GORGEOUS??!!! I WANT that door!! I LOVE the design on it…. but, since we’re poor and I have a limited to nil budget I’ll have to use our existing metal door. That’s fine. I’ll just pick a color and make it pretty. WRONG!! I am the worst decision maker ever!! I make up my mind and then I change it 5 seconds later. SO, I am enlisting your help. Here are some pictures of the front of my house:
Now, I’m not sure what color I want to paint it. I’m totally thinking about doing blue, but I don’t know how well that will look with the red brick. I don’t really want to do the very popular red. I’m sure Brynnan would love it and I don’t think I’d mind it, but it’s just done way too much.
Here’s blue number one… might be too much
And a light blue, which I think might be my favorite. Maybe a little lighter, not so turquoise…
Perfect!! I really like it. What do you think?
Now for some other color options:
This looks too Christmasy for me. I like the idea of doing green, but maybe a much lighter one…
Like this? Still not sure…
Bright yellow with a greenish tone to it.
And, you have to keep in mind that these are just doors I’ve Photoshopped color onto. I’m sure paint will look much different, but at least this way we can get a general idea. Maybe I should paint the mailbox too…. what do you think? And the lamp post…. I’ll go crazy if my hubby lets me:)
Do you have any color suggestions that I don’t have here? Tell me! I want to stay with light colors because by the end of the day this side of the house is bathed in sun and the door gets really hot, even being white, so a dark color would make it worse.
I can’t wait to hear what you think!! Thanks for stopping by!!:)
