Bridget Beari Color Rule #40

Bridget Beari Color Rule #40

Conquer Your Fear of Color by Starting Small! 

If you want to venture beyond your tan and white walls but are afraid to try something new, start with your front door. This is a place where fun colors work! 

The only thing you need to be aware of is the surface area of the house. Is it brick, sliding, painted, stone.... ? You can pick a contrasting color or a complementary one.

Or dramatic!

 It only takes a quart of paint so you can change it easily if you don't like it later.

Tip: This is a great tip from Martha Stewart on how to keep the top of your paint can lip from filling up with excess paint. It makes for a much cleaner job. 

Happy Painting......
