paint it black.

oh, man, i LOVE this song so much. really, it may be the best song ever written.

i wanted to do something VERY dramatic for the entrance to the house, so here's my ode to this most awesome of songs - i have painted my entryway, and the newel post and banister (though the balustrade remains white), high gloss black (yes, you read that right!). and i painted the door red, which i know mick explicitly warns against but, well, screw it. i like the pop of color.

so sorry, mick!

what we started with... (more puke yellow in this house than you could ever have imagined, right?)
and now!

as you can see, aside from needing a few touch-ups, i'm playing around with possible patterns that i will add in white. i'm leaning towards bare tree branches.

have any brilliant ideas? send 'em my way!


  1. Something like Cherry tree branches (think Van Gogh) would look awesome - but I would go with a light shade of grey - white may be too stark. Just my 2 cents. Robin

  2. Happy New Year !!!

  3. Looks lovely! The red door is a classic, and the black keeps it edgy without being too trendy. Your place has some good bones! :)

  4. LOVE the red door. Just love it. You got some great style, little lady. See you Wed! xo
