Yellow makes me Happy

I did it.

My husband painted this door --and our kitchen cabinets-- with this colour long before I moved into this house with him.

Sorry for the looming effect. I'm standing about four steps down on the stairway to the basement.

I don't know why it hasn't occurred to me to paint this door before now: I guess it just didn't matter to me. But heavens, it's drab.

I'd thought about painting the interior of the front door yellow: but then decided to take Leena's advice and paint it the same as my (new) trim colour. (I've yet to do that, by the way. Maybe tomorrow.) There's enough going on in that hallway without a jolt of yellow. So, somewhat impulsively, I indulged my yearning for a yellow door by painting the one at the back instead.

Now I have something to smile about when I come up the stairs.

I used the same paint that I used this summer on the kitchen cabinets--

So, the door and the cabinets match once again.

Looking at those photos, though, I can see we really have to do something about those walls. Yikers, they're awful. And the trim. To be continued.....
