The Art Of Distraction: A Garage Door Makeover

There once was a sad ugly door,

that was gross down to it's hollow core,

some paint caused distraction,

if only a fraction,

from the chaos that's ceiling to floor. Did it work?

{Disclaimer: Prevention Magazine said, "People who inhabit moderately messy spaces are more creative than those who work in very organized ones." So there.}

  1. Much better! And I LOVE you for displaying even the imperfect corners of your otherwise gorgeous abode (the ones everyone has but most design bloggers hide).

  2. It actually does work! All I see in the "after" picture is the door. And the matching yellow broom right beside it.

  3. did you see the before and after where they painted the freezer red! I'll have to find it and email to you! Is that milk on your table? Need a little cereal while you were painting;)

  4. Looks marvelous! Do you have a kitty or a puppy that uses that door?

    And you know what? That's not a bad looking garage. Our basement currently reeks of cat pee and is oh so much more of an eyesore than that. ;)

  5. If that is the case, I should be oozing creativity! My garage is a very scary place. I love the yellow door, no it's the only thing you notice. Great choice.

  8. I love it. Quick way to brighten the space up. Also reminds me I need to get the poor cat's door installed.

  9. K, I actually had to scroll back and forth to see if you straightened or changed anything else because it looked so much better. Two thumbs up!!!

  12. I love it! You crack me up....I did a little chalk board thingy on my door, and I wrote welcome home! Now the kids have erased it, and you just never know what you will find on it...life with teenagers! (They also move my roosters around some days they are all on one side, once they put it in the corner like a huddle)

  13. Love it! I think being a little cluttered is a good thing! I have a cross stitch that says "A clean house is a sign of a dull woman." Hah! :)

  14. Nice touch on the yellow. It makes the door really stand out. Mine is quite a mess as well and I just had the roller shutters replaced. It's time to work on the rest of the garage.

  15. Prevention Magazine said that people who inhabit moderately messy spaces are more creative than those who work in very organized ones. – I’d like to believe that so much. Haha! Anyway, talk about the Art of Distraction! It seems that you've nailed it by transforming that “sad ugly door” into a pretty cheerful looking one. The new look complemented the space in a creatively messy manner – if that makes sense. Haha!
