Picking paint colors, furniture, accessories, art for OTHER people is what I do best. But when it comes to making sometimes even the smallest design decision for myself, forget about it.....I will go back and forth over making a final choice on most anything when it comes to my own home. Take, for example, my front door. I posted months ago about wanting to paint it pale blue/gray. Then again, a few weeks later about wanting to paint it black. I procrastinated for another few weeks because of all the pollen, but the pollen is now long gone, so it's time to put paint brush to front door and I am going with.....glossy black!
I think I wavered so long on this one because I was afraid that black would be boring, but after I saw the first coat going up, it is anything but! It's simple, classic and sophisticated and it's going to look amazing with the ginormous green ferns flanking my door! I'll be sure to post before and after pictures once I'm done, but in the meantime, here are a few images that got me on the glossy black bandwagon in the first place:
