This was my inspiration:
Here's what we started with: (this pic is from our first tour of the house before moving in)
I really liked the door, but I was dying to get a few coats of paint on it! After
I finally just dumped all five colors together with my leftover kitchen paint (which was a lighter shade of lime green) and got to work. I started by lightly sanding the door to get off the shiny finish that was on it, to get off any oily grime from fingerprints, and and to sand down and smooth out the 3 paint swatches I had painted on it that you see above.
Here's another before and after:
Definitely much lighter and brighter. I am no longer green with envy because it's ALL MINE and I love it! :o)
