This post is sponsored by Sherwin Williams and when you paint as much as I do, you JUMP at the chance to work with them. No brainer. Of course this is my website and my own words and if you need proof of that, look for the 3ft doll cameo. Would I really have it any other way?
We put new flooring in over 2 years ago and I still haven’t repainted my front entry to go with them. (I’m looking at you, life)
The existing color had a lot of yellow in it and it just didn’t go with the new flooring at all. I also really struggled with what to do with that front table of mine.
When Sherwin Williams wanted to work together for national painting week, they actually suggested doing my front door.
We just had our porch rebuilt and a new front door put on last year so I reminded them of its current awesome status.
That door color is like a smile on the front of my house. It’s staying.
Then they asked if I had an entry…..and although small, I do.
I would be lying if I said I was all LET’S DO THIS because I could not find inspiration for this project in the last 2 years. On the other hand, I felt like this was the push I needed to FIND the inspiration.
And I did.
Right in my own backyard.
That pile of wood is my neighbors old fence. You can see his new fence in the background. He offered some of the wood to us when he took it down and I said YES! I figured it could be good fire pit wood. Or home decor?
So I started with a pile of wood and then worked from there.
Listen, I don’t understand my brain either.
I decided that although the black table worked for other holidays, for my everyday look, it was just too dark.
So I fixed that too.
Can we all say ahhhhhhhhhhh
The walls without the yellow hue, the new light table color and some old fence art.
Our family is word focused and it’s sort of our motto that anything goes around here.
Funny side story, I wanted to paint the back of the front door and told my husband that I was thinking about a grey. He says “More grey? I feel like we’re just not grey people.”
So let it be known that I listened to him once.
