When we first bought our house the front doors were painted white like the rest of the trim. On a bit of a whim I painted them blue two years ago.
I’ve been perfectly content with my muted blue doors for two years now. But last week I spotted this image on pinterest and be still my beating heart I think I need a navy door.
I love the way it looks with the green ferns and white trim in the photo above (I have those too) and I think it would look even more amazing with the muted yellow of my house. Should I go for it? I’ve got half a quart of high-gloss navy paint left over from painting Jack’s dresser last year and if I hate it I’ve still got some of the original blue paint in my stash as well. It’s just paint, right? The only thing I’ve got to lose is hours of valuable time that I could be doing other things! I think the navy would be a more classic and authentic look for this old-enough-to-be-my-grandparent house. If somebody would come over and tape off all those panes of glass I’d paint it in a heartbeat.
