Tragic Sensation - Behind Green Doors

Dramatic blog post title?!  Well, that's what it is. A dramatic tale of a tragic entry turned sensational!

The Blog:  Tragic Sensation

The Project:  Painting front door chartreuse!

It IS dramatic.  In an awesome way.

I am in love with these doors.  The chartreuse was a bold choice but it definitely makes a stunning statement....

because the doors before

were really quiet and said hi.  Now they welcome you with a smile and a "Hello!"

More pictures and steps at Tragic Sensation.  I love the wreaths too.  And the fleur de lis.  Talk about a grand entrance!  :)

Most people would be way too scared to use that color on a door, but it looks amazing!

Jenny said...

not many people would go for such an amazing color choice. It is a bright & bold statement.

I don't think I would have ever picked out that color for a front door, but it looks great!

The white wreaths really pop off the green!
