Last week I revealed our new front door.
In the comments I heard over and over that our door didn’t look like the door I had found on Pinterest that said it was painted in “Kind Green”. I agree. When I went to the actual store to pick up the paint sample I was shocked by just HOW MUCH the sample didn’t look like the picture. I true case of you can’t believe everything you read/see.
One comment though, by my dear friend Louise, was HOW FRENCH our new door color was. I hadn’t really thought about it.
Because last Monday I had reached my limit at looking at our absolutely atrocious backyard. It is truly one giant mess. So I once again asked myself “How do you eat an elephant?”
The answer is” “One bite at a time”.
I went over to one small corner and started attacking it~pulling, yanking, and ripping out weeds, half dead hedges and large rocks. I was then left with a big mound of dirt….that I had no idea what to do with.
Anyone else ever do this?
So I went to Pinterest and typed in “Simple French Gardens”.
I guess by now you have surmised what I found.
Image after image showing French doors and shutters that seemed to sport “Kind Green”.
Happy accident indeed.
