Luca's Big Boy Room Makeover - A Fun Door

Hey Guys!
It's been almost a month since I shared my inspiration for Luca's Big Boy Room Makeover.
Life has been super busy with all three kids home all day everyday,
As much as I love my children - I forgot how chaotic it is with all three kids home all day everyday!
My grandpa who I am really close with, was admitted into the hospital a few weeks ago, so Ive been spending a lot of time with family and the room makeover is happening - but a lot slower than anticipated.


I thought I had more before photos of the room from the MLS listing but unfortunately I lost them all.
This basically sums up how the room looked before.
Boring Beige Walls & an old yellowy sliding closet door.
It was a sad looking room that I couldn't wait to get my hands on!


I recently purchased John and Sherry of Young House Love's new book, and fell in love with the green door in their sons nursery.
I knew I wanted to stick with a very neutral but bright wall colour for Luca's room but I also wanted fun pops of colour.
Painting the door was the perfect way to add some fun colour! 



We used a semi-gloss paint by CIL in a King Fisher Blue.
I've never painted a door such a bright colour before and I was a little nervous after I applied the first coat.
 It looked pretty awful, but by the third coat I was so glad I took the leap and painted the door something a little out of my usual comfort zone.
I started by painting the panels with a brush them used a foam roller for the rest of the door.



      
 
 
   

The photos here don't do justice for how amazing the door looks in person! 
These were shot in horrible lighting with my iPhone but you get the idea :) 

Would you ever paint a door a bright colour? 
I was so nervous but now I want to do it again!
