|Microsoft Paint: kickin' it old school|
I've been thinking about painting the back door. Dark.
It was painted the same color as the walls. I did this a few years ago, after sick of looking at a BIG. WHITE. RECTANGLE. breaking up the back wall. And I liked it, but with all the dark wood furniture and floors, the room was getting
