Truth be told, our house is pretty new, we are the first inhabitants, and we got to pick a lot of the colors/finishes. That being said, there are not a lot of large projects that happen around here. So……. I take great pleasure in tweaking the small things to make our home more “us”. It’s all in the details for me.
When I painted our back patio door black recently, it just wasn’t packing the punch that I wanted it to. The door is mostly glass, so the small amount of black on the door just wasn’t doing much. I decided to go ahead and paint the trim surrounding the door to make it look more dramatic. And it worked. Here is a before and after.
Amazing how a 30 minute project can change the look entirely!
I like how the bold black on the door breaks up all the brown on the house, but still coordinates with our grey/black patio furniture.
This trim paint is not life changing, but the little things sure do make me happy!
