Mother's Day Weekend DIY: The house with the blue door

UPDATE: Now I have my flowers planted! I am more in love with my door than ever. Whenever I am feeling "blue," I just go look at my door!

Now that I have retired from writing my Home and Garden column, I finally have time to do some of the things I've written about.

From Mega Greige to...

... Aerospace Blue.

I can hardly stand how much I love this color. It was leftover paint from my upstairs hallway. I hated it in the hallway and painted over it a few months later. I L.O.V.E. it on the frontdoor.

It took me less than two hours, with the bulk of the time being dedicated to taping off the glass and edges. I used sponge brushes for ease of application. My next project? Paint the backdoor the exact same color.

P.S. My blog is not dead yet, it's feeling better. It's feeling happy. I think it would like to take a walk. (Name that movie.)
