The door was a bland tan to begin with, so painting it wasn't a hard sell.
In fact, it was a lot easier than I expected...
me: I want to paint our front door red, wouldn't that look awesome?
me (preparing to throw a tantrum if necessary): Really? ya know, I want to paint the inside red too.
Sarge: Might as well. If your gonna do it, do it.
me (now feeling empowered): I want to paint the kitchen door red too.
me: I want the inside red too...
Sarge: I think you should paint the family room door to the garage while you're at it.
And so with that conversation and a conveniently timed commercial for Glidden door paint we were off to buy some red paint. This paint comes in a limited pallet, with 2 reds.
me: okay, which red?
(please pick classic red... please pick classic red...)
Sarge: I like Classic Red
Sarge: Well yeah. If you're gonna go red, go red.
So, I went RED.
And I'm so glad I did! I am in love with my newly painted door.
It's just so shiny, and RED!
And I am so happy that I painted the inside too!
Next I'm going to tackle the french doors in the kitchen.
Though, I'm still not sure if I'll paint the family room door red yet...
