Singing the Navy Blues for the Sun Room Door


Summer has basically come and gone but darn it, I’m going to finish the sun room before winter is here. Thankfully, Virginia falls are probably among the best out there. Bye bye humidity – hello perfect 70 degree weather. This also makes it perfect sun room sitting weather since sometimes the weather in the summer would melt your eye balls. So I will continue chipping away at my sun room projects as long as I can get away with it.

This next project was an easy one that added a bold pop of color (since clearly it is lacking color – hah!). It was time to paint the door (which I primed here and gilded the door knob here).

I decided to pick Pantone’s Navy Blue from my pre-planned color scheme. Since it’s an outdoor space I had to get it color matched in Valspar’s Duramax. I used my tried and true door painting method o freshen up the door.

I love how the navy blue looks in both the sun room and Mego Cave (for when the door is open). I wanted to factor that into the equation since I like to keep that door open when I work in there to add a bit more light to the room. Also, I can stare at my pretty little emerald and gold table while I daydream work at my desk.

Before we move on from this project, you will notice a “new” little doormat in front of the door. Actually it is quite an old door mat that I bought at an estate store.

I originally thought I was going to use it as artwork but all of a sudden I got the urge to paint it gold. So a few quick coats later I had a golden door mat (as cool as the golden ticket in my mind).

I like how it brings together the door knob and mat while also picking up the gold in the emerald and gold table.
