See It, Like It, Do It! - "Front Door Project"

When I purchased my first single-family home in 2007, I recall being so excited about
decorating.  From the inside out beginning with the front door, I had big plans.  While perusing through an issue of Blueprint magazine I stumbled upon this great idea for a front door color.

I remember thinking, “I want that to be me.”  Sitting on the front stoop reading the Charlotte Observer, sipping my Community Coffee..   You get the idea.  So I went for it.  I painted the door with Olympic's Fuzzy Navel and loved the result. 



I know, a bit bright, but very happy and most importantly very me.  I liked it, but apparently the  HOA didn’t, as I received a notice shortly thereafter stating that my fabulous color selection was not an “APPROVED” color option.  Hmmm, I thought I paid the mortgage?  Oh well, the best laid plans….

Front door now, not nearly as “happy” but very much in compliance. I guess it’ll have to do.  Nevertheless, you get the point.  I saw it, I liked it and I did it, and so can you!
