DIY Shoetube Style Part 1: Finding the Perfect Paint Amongst My Shoes

As I was lounging poolside trying to figure out my next home improvement project (I have a real fixer-upper), I decided that my front door is in desperate need of a new shade of polish errrr I mean paint. Mind you, I have a stream in my basement and a rogue raccoon living in my atttic, but obviously the front door takes priority.

Currently my door is painted what I believe is called “barn” red or at least that’s what the paint can in the garage said. I mean, seriously? I do not live in a barn, so I’m not quite sure why my front door should resemble one.

As I pondered paint pallets, much in the fashion I choose pedi-polish colors, I decided that I needed inspiration. Then it dawned on me: what better place to look for the perfect hue, than amongst my shoes?! All metallics were pretty much out, as were the yellow Puccis, anything neutral was far too dull, but what about the pinks? I scrutinized

Is it possible to have too many pink shoes?

Is it possible to have too many pink shoes?

the lineup and quickly decided that the Jimmy Choos were too pale, the Charles David too bright, but the Guccis were just right! 

Be sure to check back for Part 2 next week: I can’t wait to see the reaction at Home Depot when I tell them I need paint to match my pumps!
