As you know, I recently painted our front door kiln. Which is a brownish red color. I had been wanting to paint our back doors the same color, but was hesitant because the grids are inside the glass. They are white and I was afraid that would look bad.
I was recently looking through the May 2011 issue of Country Sampler magazine and I came across my friend Janice's house. I have gotten to know Janice through her blog Stairway to Home and through emails. We have found that we have a lot in common. Are houses are very similar on the inside and outside. She even has the same siding, brick and roof as we do. I have gotten several wonderful ideas from Janice and I like to think she has gotten some good ones from me too. While looking at her beautiful home I noticed that her french doors were painted a brownish red and the grids in the doors were white. To make sure my eyes were not deceiving me, I emailed Janice and asked her. Sure enough her grids are white. She encouraged me to paint the doors. She said, "Don't worry about the grids being white, people will think you did it on purpose." So I went for it last Saturday.
Here is the before. It isn't the best picture. It is the only one I could find.
Here is the after.
I love how they turned out and Janice was right about the grids. They do not bother me at all. Thanks Janice!!
So, what do you think?
