Front Door Dilema

Do you remember my age old dilema about my front door! To paint or not to paint? and then I went and bought the wrong colour! but most of you liked it! (catch up here) Well! I have gone and done it!  I have now painted it a lighter colour…more duck egg blue!…(it probably looks the same colour as the previous post! but trust me! it is about 3 shades lighter!) and I luuuuurve this colour….I know! I know! on the pictures of the other post it did look lovely and most of you said to keep it! but my camera flash had really lightened the true colour and I really thought that I would be able to get used to it! but I didn’t! so it had to be lightened!

I have also been a ‘devil’ and painted the dark wood porch white too! lol! Gee! get a paintbrush in my hand and nothing is safe! ;D  As I also painted the gate!…the garage, and the picket fence in the back garden!

….Is there no end to my talents! lol!

I might have to rest up now for a few weeks! for I have RSI in my wrists! so I definitely will not be able to do any housework! (YES!) lol!

    Oh this color is perfect and I know what you mean about the camera photographing things lighter than they really are. I have this problem a lot with mine.

    Blimey – best not to stand still for too long at your place, or you'll get slapped with paint – hee hee! I'm the same – once that paint pot is out it is difficult to stop, isn't it? But it all looks fab. Love it.Gorgeous x
