Macaroni and Cheese

Nope, this isn't a recipe post about delicious, cheesy pasta goodness.

I finally picked a paint for the front door! I decided our front door needed to be the same color as those yellow-ey/orange Mustangs, which I have deemed Macaroni and Cheese Mustangs. I am not a Ford fan, but I would buy one just because I LOVE the color!

Aren't I creative? A grapevine wreath painted black. Genius. lol

I upgraded my wreath too!
The color is Martha Stewart Pencil in Satin finish. You would not believe how hard it is to find a good yellow-orange. Everything was either supercrazybright yellow or pumpkin orange. I was tempted to buy a touch up pen from Ford and have it color matched. In the end, I also discovered Disney makes a color called Smackeral of Hunny, which is almost identical to the Pencil.

The door hardware was a weird black-ey/brassy/yucky tone, but I love the ornate shape of it so out came the ORB spray paint!

From this:

To this:

 Much better, no?

And just for fun, let's see a close up of the bow:

 What color is your front door? Do you decorate it for the seasons?
