DIW - Did it Wrong!

Centsational Girl inspired me and I stepped out on a painting limb.  Her spaces are gorgeous and I loved the closet door in this office picture.

It really finishes the room and takes the whole office up one notch.  I decided to try the same effect on my front door but made one critical mistake.  I painted the door the same color as my walls - Pristine - a blush color.  In order to get the lines straight, I had to use several coats and the result reminds me of a bad self-tanning job - a little orangey pinky - just off. 

I wanted to review my inspiration photo again and it was then that I realized she used a different color on the doors. That is why it pops.  Now I have a dilemma.  Do I just paint the door white and move on with my life or do I try the painting effect again with a different color from the walls? (I'm thinking a light teal/aqua)

I won't tell you what I am going to do but I will post the pictures in the next two days.  Here's to taking a design risk!

  1. I think you ought to try again! After all its only paint and time, of course. Thanks for sharing. I think the inspiration room is great too.
