Mellow Yellow

The sun is shining and the unthinkable finally happened.. we got central air! I cant express how exciting this news is. I have never had central air and the thought of never having a hot sleepless night again feels really good. AC in Edmonton still feels more like an extravagant luxury and not a necessity so it was a really big decision for our family. So far its been only a few days but already its made a huge difference. The kids are going to sleep at a decent hour again and everyone is sleeping well.
 
To celebrate the AC we added a splash of color to the exterior for under $25



Using an exterior paint made for our metal door we settled on Martha Stewarts EGG YOLK. A mini foam roller worked well and took only a few minutes to apply (we did 2 coats)
We also refreshed the white detail around the window


 
We removed the storm door (no longer needed now that we have A/C..oooh yeah baby!)  and now have a user friendly entrance with a bit of cheer

 

The bright yellow definitely reflects my mood lately and now that I know how easy and inexpensive it was to update the door,  I might just consider a new door color every year!
