I've begun decorating the new house, and while this will be a very long process, I thought I'd share one of my first projects today.
My new kitchen had a broom closet door that was left unfinished. Everyone seems to comment on this door when they pop in to take a peek at the house. "You gonna paint that door, Erin?" Wink.
I gave the door a lot of thought. I considered leaving it as is, staining it, pickling it, and finally painting it. At first I thought I'd paint it white like the rest of the kitchen cabinets, but the kitchen is so neutral in color, that I felt like a punch of color would help tighten up a huge wall and give the eyes something to soak in.
The color is Sea Green by Restoration Hardware in the subtle velvet finish. I just love how this turned out!
I also added a large Mackenzie Childs Taylor ball knob to match my dishes.
Oh, and remember the Civil War picture frame that I got for my husband last Christmas?
Only took me a year and two months, but I finally got around to framing the photo I had in mind.
More home decorating to come but I've got a stack of boxes calling my name first.
