Yellow, please.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love the color yellow? I LOVE the color yellow. If I could put it everywhere I would. However, after something of a disastrous office painting (so, so, so much yellow), I have been nervous to put it up on the walls again. But today as I was looking at my front door, I thought..."yellow, you my dear friend, should be painted yellow."

Before the painting began (I forgot to get a pre-prep picture - oops!)

Right away I ducked into the garage and dug in to find the old can of paint that I had used in the office. I wasted no time as I prepped everything, this was going to look amazing! I had high hopes. I had always had it in the back of my mind that I wanted a yellow door somewhere, but the outside of the door just wasn't a possibility. The house I live in is beige and red - yellow would just make it look like a weird McDonald's (ew) spin-off - & I just couldn't be having any of that.

The minute I started painting, I knew I made the right decision - how I've missed you yellow! The only thing I may love more than yellow in a house are plants - & guess what looks even better together? Yellow PLUS plants! I thought my heart was going to explode with happiness - plants, yellow, a bold new look? Yes please.

I put on the first coat & headed outside to hang out with the dogs while I let it dry. What I forgot about successful house projects, is that they inspire you to do more. And something I've been meaning to get to but haven't had a chance to, is the garden! So I worked on some garden prep while the paint dried.

& now for the big reveal...(drum roll please)...

Lovely right? I think so. The best part? I have a new sense that I have totally got this house project thing! I can't wait to start on some other things I've been contemplating & keep developing my own sense of style. :)
