Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

I LOVE red. Like a lot. Red shoes, red sweaters, red doors...
Red walls...

LOVE it!

But lately I feel like it's time to change and mix things
up a little. (Otherwise known as decorater's ADD.)
So a lot (most) of the red in my house is being phased out.
The only catch is I am challenging myself to do this el cheapo.
The oops paint at Lowes and Walmart have been good to me lately.
Oh greenish blue retro turquoise for 5 bucks... you will go far!

...and there's Chloe... sorry about that.
Have you ever seen a dog smile? Ours does... a lot!
OK back to the paint.
My red door is now this color
My red wall is now this color...
Yeah that's black... not eggplant, I would NEVER dream of such a thing! Blegh!
I hesitate to show you this picture yet because it is SO not finished yet.
Picture black and white curtains, a turquoise-ish (same color as the door)
window box and stuff ( I don't know yet) on that white shelf (that is waiting to be
antiqued and distressed). I have a lot of work to do... just the way I like it!

I'm a little sad to see the red go, I really loved it. But I'm loving the changes!

Riley looked over my shoulder while i was looking at Chloe and he says, "Chloe is such a funny dog. Look at her smile. She is showing her teeth just like me!" Then he smiled REALLY big. Then he said, "what species is chloe? she's a rodegion ridgeback." he sure likes your dog! :)

I love how you did the door!! Looks great. And I LOVE turquoise - and it's really pretty easy to decorate with. My cousin just painted her bedroom black with lots of white trim and it looks fabulous!!! Keep up the hard work - it's looking great!
