Okay, I did something bad.
I know I am going to get in trouble, but it will be fun while it lasts.
I have always been a rule follower. If you tell me I cannot do something, I do not do it. But somewhere along the way, our homeowners’ association has lost me. It seems that they let some things slide. While others, they are extremely picky about. I think it has something to do with living in an older neighborhood.
You want to hang those holiday flags? Sure, why not. It does not matter that Easter was over two months ago. Colored eggs are so chic.
Naked statues in the front yard? Well, mermaids are adorable.
Peeling garage doors needing paint? Hmmm… It looks so shabby chic.
But dare to paint your fence color a different shade of beige than the beige that was chosen, and you will get letter after letter. With a final warning being that they are having a meeting about the “situation.”
And then come the fines.
I have done that very same bad thing.
And yes, we had to repaint our fence… From beige to more beige.
I had my painter paint our front door bright green. Bright green. It went from brown to bright green. I am scared. Our neighbors have white, blue and the occasional red. I figured why not?
I probably figured wrong.
So, let’s enjoy the green door while we can. I give it one month. Then back to brown.
But, hey, I cannot say I did not try.
Do you have a crazy color for your front door?
