Tidbit Tuesday (doors)

Well I haven't done a Tidbit in a little while...Do you even like Tidbit Tuesday? I've been trying to get y'all to contribute but I haven't heard much of anything. This week is a BIG week for this little blog of mine. Do you know why? It's almost 1 whole year old! August 9th is the official day. So that means I should consider doing a little updating. Maybe this will be the last Tidbit Tuesday. Any thoughts?

Let's get to the tidbit. As you probably know I've recently moved in to an old farmhouse. We've been busy painting lately. It's amazing what a little paint can do, especially with doors. I think most people paint doors out of necessity. Because really by the time you paint everything else do you really want to paint a door if you don't have to? I've been painting the doors in my house a little out of necessity and because the impact is HUGE.  Here's what most of the doors looked like before:

There was a lot of brown in this house. It's slowly but surely getting better. The only reason I can imagine that someone would use so much brown is to hide dirt. Now, how would you repaint this door? A lot of people just choose one color and it's usually white.

You DON'T have to paint your door only one color! Next time you consider painting a door think about how you can make an architectural impact and do something different.

All the doors in your home don't have to be painted the same. Have fun with it!

Next time you paint a door try something different. The results will amaze you!

While we're on the topic of doors I found an original key to the farmhouse when I was cleaning the basement. You might have already seen it on Instagram. Isn't it beautiful? I'd love to see you on Instagram sometime! My user name is creatingthroughlife

If you enjoy reading my Tidbits let me know and maybe I'll keep it up. Or if you have decided that you have one to share after-all I'd love to post it. 

 Stay tuned because I think there is going to some CELEBRATING in the near future!!!!
