Saw it. Pinned it. Did it. // Blue Pantry Door

A few weeks ago I revealed that I painted my pantry door blue after being inspired by this pin.
I tried really, really hard to take some good pictures for you all, but photography is obviously not my niche! (Maybe I should read my camera's user manual? Haha!! That will likely never happen...) At least you can get the overall idea even though the colors in the photos are a little off. (My walls look pale(ish) yellow. They are really just white.)
I painted two coats of a paint/primer combo on one side, flipped the door over when dry, and then painted two coats on the other side! An easy way to get a pretty pop of color in my predominately color neutral kitchen. Originally I planned on distressing the door like the Pinterest version above, but when all was said and done I decided I liked the bold blue as it was!


And before I sign off for the day we should probably discuss this Google Reader booting business. I'm sure you've heard that Google is saying goodbye to their Google Reader feature, which I'm guessing means the Google Friend Connect (the way that many of you have chosen to follow my blog) will bite the dust here shortly, too. 

So, if you do follow my blog via GFC and want to continue to follow along after July 1st, I encourage you to pick a second means of following now to make the transition easier! (And I would recommend Bloglovin'. It is easy to use and much more organized then Google Reader in my opinion.)

Bloglovin' | Facebook | Pinterest | Twitter | Instagram

I appreciate every single one of my readers and am blown away that anyone other than my mom even reads this blog (hi, mom)! So I would love for you to continue following along with my journey after the changes are made in July.

But beware, if you do choose to follow along on Instagram you will be bombarded with photos of Huckleberry and Herschel. I warned you.

Oh my gosh what a great idea, I love that blue door! Now I want to do something similar...

I use the Reading List on the Blogger dashboard to follow blogs... I hope that method will stay intact??

I think GFC is only going away for non-blogger sites. Still not great, but good for those who use blogger.

Love love love the door! What a cute idea. Are you going to distress it or leave it? I think the distress is cute in the pinterest picture, but it is definitely more rustic. Great color.
