it’s a start
hi all, thank you so much for your ideas and suggestions yesterday! i’m sure if i didn’t blog that door would have stayed white as rice till i moved out. but i came across this shot of a dorothy draper room just as i was closing down last night and decided to use it as inspiration for painting the door.
and they reminded me of the doors we had at the AD show that i secretly hoped wouldn’t sell. so with the simplicity of gold as the catalyst, i went to michael’s and splurged on the tools of the trade. the giant variety pack of brushes was just $5 and the paint was $2. tape must have been $6. i was on a strict budget so this was a way to satiate this apparent creative urge but not go crazy.
once i really looked at the doors and the detail there were more options than i realized. and as someone who loves trim in multiple colors there are a lot of potential combos.
i’m considering painting the thin outer edge frame. maybe black? but not today. today was just the gold. and blue if you count the tape! it’s been handy visually cause some of the other options got blocked out. i may even keep it up. ;p
inside, outside, double lines, single inset, panel or frame?
decisions are tough! but phew, i committed and got through it :)
well that leaves space for colors but what and where? i’m open to suggestions and love your ideas.
next project is the wall. below is the chair at the AD show with gracie wallpaper behind it. maybe something like that? i Or just silvery metallic out of a can? i could probably paint branches and leaves. a bird? that’s asking a lot but then again if i can tape out a door, sky’s the limit!
well, that’s about it for tonight. it was a long, good day, chock full of much of a muchness so i’m off to retire. bonne nuit mes cheres cheries!!
