Aqua {LOVE}

Hello everyone, happy almost Friday!!! It is still hot hot hot over here in SoCal but I am dying for it to feel like Fall. Arg!

I wanted to share with you a little house update that has my heart goin' pitter patter. It's no secret to many of you who have been reading this blog that I loooooove me some aqua. It is my go to accent color always, and I use for pretty much every holiday. After bugging my husband for quite some time, he finally broke down and got to work (my nagging can feel like Chinese water torture, I'm told - lol). I could have attempted this project myself, but I tend to defer to the hubby when it is a major feature in our home. I get a tad......sloppy-ish when I paint, so it is best if the things that require precision and care get thrown his way.

Here is the before shot of our front door:


(sorry for the half-in-the-sun pics).
It's not a bad color by any means, but cranberry just isn't really "me."

Ready for the after shot!!??
Isn't it just the happiest front door ever!!?
I love it sooooooooooooooo much!!!
A special thanks to my sweet hubby for doing all the hard work (and doing it oh so well).
Life is {Aqua} and sweet!!!

  2. That's great!! The lighter aqua and the darker aqua in the planter are perfect together, and then the green siding really adds charm!

  3. You already know I love it, but I'll say it again. I love it! And sorry it's so stinkin hot there. When we got back to Kentucky it was a shock how much cooler it is here. It was crazy hot in Cali! Hope you guys cool off soon.

  4. Love your aqua door! What a fun change. Your hubby did a beautiful job painting. Very pretty Ali! It's pretty hot up here in SF too and we're supposed to be in the triple digits over the weekend. I'm ready for some Fall weather.

  5. I get sloppy-ish too when I paint :) I AM IN LOVE with this color!! Is your door wood or metal? What kind of paint did you use? How long did it take before you could put the door back on? Did you roll or brush it? Ummm can you tell I want to do my own door?? ha!
