I made the mistake of painting an accent wall in a very small room in my first apartment and there was just too much going on in such a small space. Guests opted to sleep on the couch. I converted it into a walk in closet when the one in my room became too small for my extensive wardrobe:
|Before (this looks like a make over for a prison):|
|After - much more inviting|
|Yes, I have enough shows, purses and dresses to fill a room. I am not ashamed.|
But I still have an affinity for yellow accents. Which brings me to my desire for a yellow door. Since I live in an apartment, I don't think it would be a good idea to actually paint any part of the door's surface. I am toying with the idea of using yellow contact paper to brighten up the inside of the main entrance door. I'll believe I'll have to order the contact paper online since I haven't seen anything like it in the stores. Here's a couple of inspiring pics:

|The Art of Nothing|
Now that I've seen some of these pics I think I might put up some empty frames to create faux crowning. Eeeek... so excited! Hold me Zack!
That clip never gets old. Long live the folks at Bayside High.
