Follow Your Heart
Well, I did it and I love it! The color is Sherwin Williams Aqueduct. I love this color. I want to do the backstroke in it, pour it into a colorful mug, top it with marshmallows and drink it, wrap it up and tuck it under my pillow at night. I would marry this color if I could. I'm ready to commit. Yep it's serious. A little over the top, right? But I am just that into it. I keep forgetting about it and then I walk in to the room and catch sight of it and it just makes me smile. Does your house make you smile? If not you should work on that. Live your life for you! I get that this door might not be for everyone but it is for me and a smile inducing door can only make life better I think.
Here is a wider view of the room so you can see how the door works overall. And there is Millie pouting on her pillow because I'm too busy to throw her ball for her.
As with any project I do, this one seems to be having a snowball effect. I will soon be attempting a slipcover for that ottoman and I'm searching for an antique dresser to fit where that entry table is. Outside that window is the covered front porch where I will be spending a good portion of the next few days painting. My hope is to have all of the house painting done by Thanksgiving. Be gone hunter green paint! Be gone mustard gold paint! Be gone molding the color of manila folders!
I seem to be in major nesting mode lately. Is it just me? Do you think it's the weather? I will try to stop long enough to share my progress. Hoping your weekend is as happy as an aqua door!
