The Color I Chose for My Front Doors.

Hi all,  I hope you had a great Memorial Day. Several weeks ago I did a post on Front Door Inspiration. You can see it here. And at that time I was trying to decide what color I wanted to paint my front doors. Well the jury is in and the color I chose was.......

sorry fuzzy pic
 Oriental Eggplant by Behr. You can see it here. I love, love, love the color. This shot was taken about 5 minutes or so after I finished painting. And shortly after that it started to rain, and it rained most of the night. I guess I don't have to tell you what happened to my amazingly beautiful, professional looking paint job! It was ruined, and I was devastated. Now I would have to repaint the doors all over again. That incident took the wind right out of my sails and until now, I really haven't had the motivation to finish the project. But a few days ago I mustered up some spizzerinctum and made a conscience decision to complete this project. I asked Hubby to sand the doors. And later this week I will repaint them, add wreaths, spruce up the area a bit; and voila, I will be back in business before summer.

Have you had any projects that went haywire recently?



  1. Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about your painting project. It's unfortunate that you have to do the work all over again. I do love the eggplant color, though so I can't wait to see how everything turns out.

  2. Thanks Dee, I am not looking forward to repainting again, but this is one project that I am looking forward to scratching off my to do list. Have a great week!
