The blue front door

As I was leaving my driveway the other day I looked back at my house and realized I didn't like my black door anymore! 
Black is great, but I just got a decorating bug and had to do something different:) 

Originally I had a hunter green door which was a popular color in the 90's, but today it became blue, not just any blue but..."Running trout stream" blue!

I love all shades of blue...
the sky,

the ocean in Cozumel,

my son's eyes,

and my beautiful glass tile bowl which was the inspiration for my door!

I painted 2 coats of semi gloss paint, then dry brushed black paint into the corners and panel edges.

I liked the look of the black edges so I dry brushed the whole door:)

 Behold the blue door!

I added my January wreath which has frosted magnolia flowers with a
 crystal swag intertwined in the flowers. 

I love my door so much that tomorrow I am painting my back door blue:)
