A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: My Garage Door

My Garage Door

We all know how the inside door to the garage looks....blah. So yucky. And boring. And yucky. And boring.

So, I did something about it. I grabbed a Martha Stewart sample. I've been dying to use it. And when my neighbor said, you need to use this Martha Stewart color on a piece of furniture, I went to my car and pulled out the exact color! It was crazy. Then for some reason I started brushing it on the door....

I don't have a before. But, who doesn't have an ugly garage door (unless of course you live in an apartment, or have a carport, or whatev, but you know what I'm saying...not trying to leave those with cool doors or no doors out!)

Here's the door as it looks today.

Bay Leaf by Martha Stewart purchased a sample at Home Depot. Go and get it. You won't be disappointed. Boy do I love that color. It's going to be a staple in my furniture. It matches the chairs!

Holy crap. I love it. Tom said, "It amazes me that I can go to work in the morning and come home and have a green door. A green door." I'm not sure if he was giving me a compliment, but whatev. I love it. It makes me happy to drive into the garage. Oh wait, I can't drive into the garage. There's too much furniture in it.

So fun. And green. Bay Leaf Green...go. Hurry. Go get it.

I love your door! I think this is the same color that I used on two side tables.

I love all doors not white, and would be so happy not driving into this garage, too!

Wow, what a cute door! That is a great color. Maybe it's time to paint our boring white garage door :)

OOhhh!!! I totally agree! Great green. Not to bright, not too pastel, not too olivey, just right! Good find.

Ok, I want to do it, I really do! I will have to wait until it is cold outside as i will have to leave the door open to dry around the edges. Here in Florida it will be in cold in January. Why not! What fun! thanks

I agree. It looks great. I may be doing a little painting real soon. My white door in my garage looks awful. This might just be the cheery thing I could use and a color would sure hide the dirty handprints.
