A blue door and a kitchen window box

Beige is my signature color, so this was a brave move for me and a decision that was made without a lot of thought.  But I like it!   My front door was brown, like my shutters below.  
 The color is Dragonfly, by Behr.  Exterior satin finish. This is a one day job.

I have summer time dreams of the petunias and potato vine spilling over the kitchen window box that Mister made for me with scraps he had laying around.  Next year I think I might try kitchen herbs in the box.
The shutters have a fresh coat paint, "Bear Run" by Behr.
Happy Summer, ya'll.
I'll be linking up to the block party at


  1. That looks so awesome! Your mind must always be racing about what you are going to do next! :) I love the blue door and the flower box is lovely. I planted some flowers while my sister was in town and they are struggling for survival. I am a plant killer.
