Confession time. Remember last week when I shared my living room inspiration board and you were all like "Yay, way to go Jennifer! No blue!" ? Okay, maybe only a few of you noted that but for the rest of you it was a moment of accomplishment. I had finally found the courage to step out of my comfort zone aka the blue zone.
As you can see from the board I put together I am aiming for sunny yellows and charcoal greys for the living room makeover BUT now time for the confession.......... sooooooooo I managed to sneak in a little blue into our living room. Actually, if you want to be technical it's a blue-green so really I think that means I haven't converted back to my ol' ways. Yes! One point for me!
We're still in the middle of this room makeover so don't mind the missing switch plates or the hodge podge entry decor I threw together to make this room look livable in the mean time.
The paint color is Stratton Blue by Benjamin Moore.
I have to admit Benji you made me fall in love.
I've always been smitten with bold painted front doors (we actually only did the inside of the door) but I have to admit I was a little nervous at first.
What if I picked the wrong color? What if it looked horrible?
Then finally I put on my big girl panties and was like "It's just paint!"
I mean what's the worst that can happen? You hate and repaint it, right?
I thought it would take weeks to get use to but it took minutes folks, just minutes.
The hubby really likes it too!
Here's a a view of the hue at night.
I just love how that pop of color dresses up the entry way and make it more welcoming.
So there you have it.....I managed to sneak in a little blue into this room.
Like they say "old habits die hard".
I think it will still bold well with my yellow/grey color combo (let's hope!).
And at this moment I solemnly swear to restrain myself from adding blue to the rest of the room.
For now.....I mean promises are made to be broken sometimes, right? *Wink, wink*.
So how do you feel about painted front doors?
Take a paint brush to anything recently that you were hesitant about but ended up loving?
