Painted Doors

I found myself getting a little too bored lately so I decided to paint these old doors in our house. It was actually pretty fun and makes me happy to look at them now:) I love the simple things in life!
This is our bathroom door. I looked at a few different stencils for this door but then just came up with my own. I used a cool whip container lid and traced around it with pencil to create the circles, overlapping each other.  Then I painted blue inside the "football shapes."
This is our bedroom door. I drew 3 inch columns on it and painted them tan. It's simple but I love stripes!
This is Max's bedroom door. For this one I just started taping random lines with scotch tape and left the center extra wide. I painted blue inside all the rectangles then I used my handy cool whip lid and made the polka dots in the middle. Then I removed the tape to have nice crisp lines.  

This is a small hallway so I couldn't quite get a picture to show all three doors. It's hard to get the full effect but they all match each other and it's fun to add some color to our boring hallway!


  1. How fun, they look so great! I love the colors too!

  2. UM...Kristianne! I'm pretty sure you are AMAZING! I don't know how you get all of this done with two boys! Keep up the good work...You are inspiring and amazing!

  3. Oh my goodness! I have always known you were amazing, but you knock my socks off. I wish I lived next door so some of your awesomeness would rub off on me.

    1. Haha! Thanks Heather, I think you're already pretty awesome:)

  4. This is such a cute idea! I never would have thought to paint doors inside the house!
