Here is a typical conversation between my husband and myself…
Me: “Honey, can I…”
After giving him “the look” he finally asks, “OK, what is it?”
Me: “Can I paint the dining room table?”
Me: “I NEED to paint something in this house! Can I paint one of the interior doors? I promise you’ll love it.”
Hub: “Can I think about it?”
That’s as good as a “YES” in my book.
Honestly, he is such a good sport and likes 99% of my projects and ideas. Well, this afternoon I decided to quickly act on my impulse to paint one of our doors. The door I chose was the one that led into the garage. It’s tucked away so you don’t really see it. Plus, it seemed dark in this hallway after I painted the wall with black chalkboard paint:
On a recent trip to Home Depot this paint caught my eye:
When I opened the can, I have to admit that I was a bit shocked at how bright it was, but it’s just paint, right?
I wanted the door to be a bit different so I decided to tape off a couple vertical stripes with blue painters tape.
This was a lot easier than I thought. I simply ran a line of tape along two of the “ridges” on the door.
Time to paint!
I let the paint dry for at least one hour. While the paint was still a little tacky I removed the tape. (This ensures you don’t remove any of the paint and leaves you with a clean edge).
Voila! I absolutely LOVE this and it sure adds a sunny shot of color in an otherwise dark space.
I was feeling so confident about my painting until my son said, “Daddy’s gonna be so mad at you!”
What do you think? Would you paint one of your interior doors a bright color?
