We have the same marigold color in our living room/den combo (it was supposed to be a dining room too but we have a big kitchen and don't "dine" so we didn't need it)-- Everyone thinks it is weird, but we love it! Happy to not be alone! Smiley

prussian blue is one of my favourite colours. its subtle without being darb, and goes well with shades of ochre. it would be a nice colour for throw pillows, or to paint a chair or picture frame

I love it!

How did you put the tissue paper on the windows?  I have a similar type of back door that would look marvelous that way.

Thanks everyone!

As for the doors, I just bought tissue paper from a craftstore and cut it to size, then used a watered down craft glue to paint it on. If you do try it, I suggest water soluble for easy removal later on. Also, when you are gluing ong the tissure paper, don't get it too sopping wet. Not only will it cause it to rip (which is actually pretty easy to cover up, by just moving the paper around or adding more) but also because the dye from the tissure paper can start to run and stain your door. But it was pretty fun, cheap and easy- I am all about the instantly gratifying projects!
