When we moved into our home the front door was painted this sickly peachy-cream color that just had to go. A few coats of blue later and we're satisfied. There's just one problem — we I kinda, accidentally painted the brick too! Click through to see a close up view and offer your suggestions.

Now I've always considered myself to be a rather decent painter. I take my time and don't really have much clean up and never have to use painter's tape or the like. Before I started I had noticed the paint that the previous homeowner had managed to get on the brick. "What a slob," I thought to myself!

Turns out, that section of the door is ridiculously hard to paint and well... I sort of painted it too. Crap. Now we're debating on what our options are. Do we paint the entire inside edge of the brick a coordinating color to mask the marks or is there a way to remove it? We could paint the large piece of concrete that sits below the door the same color (it's currently baby blue) to coordinate the brick if that's the case? What would you do?

P.S. Send warm, happy thoughts to my mums so they grow big and tall!
