A Less-Than-Extreme Home Makeover



Because what else could I possibly have to do on the day before my family came over for Thanksgiving dinner, right?

Never let it be said that I don't know how to prioritize.
(I blame it all on the hormones, my friends.)

My awesome photography skills make the door look a little brighter than it is; in real life, it is a richer, deeper red and we have really warmed to it.

The only glitch? The earful I got while painting the door red instead of blue, which, as Sally informed me, is a better color in every way.

Tough luck, kiddo.


  1. Looks great. Isn't it pretty much a rule that you have to paint your door red in that part of the country anyway? ;-)

  2. I like it! Our door is black. Talk about B.O.R.I.N.G. And it's U.G.L.Y. But when I looked at the price of a new door, it got a little prettier. I like your entryway and I like red. Hope all is well :)

  3. Red looks awesome!!! Sorry Sally.

  4. There's nothing like a new splash of color! It looks awesome!
    You have no idea how tempted I was to paint our living room the day before my folks arrived. Priorities indeed.

  5. Lurker here. I love the red door. It really makes your front entrance pop.

  6. I just said the other day (in SC) that I love houses with red doors.

  7. I'm with Sally. But that red door sure is pretty.

    Of course, this means that most of your guests will feel the need to sing "Paint It Black" upon entering your house. You do know this, right?

    My door is still "primer-offwhite" almost 2 years after I got it. Whenever someone around here gets to painting it, it will be blue. Because I get to pick.


Go ahead and say it. You know you want to.
