This week's project was a happy accident.
A fortuitous occurrence.
A most welcome happenstance.
It started out as a mistake, and ended with another little piece of my heart filled with happiness.
We went to Lowe's on Monday to buy paint for our new beehive.
First mistake: Lowe's on a holiday.
Second: Buying paint from Lowe's on a holiday.
The paint lady was completely not paying attention when my husband told her what he wanted.
So, we ended up buying 2 quarts of the same color: one flat, the other semi-gloss.
Fortunately, we love us some blue.
Now, instead of basic white:
Our door is the color of a ripe blueberry!
3 coats with a brush/ roller + 36 hours of drying time.
We didn't even take the door down - just taped off the edge.
I think it really brightens the whole exterior.
I love the color.
It 'pops' against the white storm door & red brick.
The white door was too bland.
A red door? Not with red brick.
Black? Are you on crack?
Blue, you are juuuuust right.
