The Unexpected – When Using Paint

Do you like the unexpected in decorating? What about when using paint?
I saw this idea in a decorating magazine (I think it was House Beautiful) a few months ago and haven’t been able to get it out of my head.

I like the unexpected in decorating. I like something to stand out from the rest of the room or an unexpected color slipped in an unexpected place.

Can you see it?

It only took a few minutes and it surprises me every time I see it. I think I’ll paint more door edges, but not too many because then it wouldn’t be unexpected, would it?

How have you decorated in an unexpected way?

    I’m dying to know how you use the pocket organizer on your pantry door. It looks like something terribly clever!!!

    Great idea. I love it. Hmmm, what door to paint in my house?

    I totally thought it was painters tape for a second. But I really like the little touch of color, so fun!

    Cool idea! Love the old window collage on the one wall as well!

  • Oh, this is a super fun idea! I’m anxious to start decorating my place, but we are still in the improvment stage. I spied your cool door idea from the Nifty Thrify linky party. I would love if you stopped by my blog.

    Thanks for sharing,

    I’ve never seen anyone paint their door edge in color before. How cool!
