Ruby Tuesday at Yukon Street
Yukon Street is a row of five heritage houses built up a little hill across from a tiny park in an old neighbourhood of Victoria. All the homeowners have been fixing up and painting these century-old gems and the street is looking pretty spiffy.
My little house is at the top. We don't actually live there now--it's rented out to a lovely couple downstairs and a young teacher upstairs. This red door was created by sponging a crimson acrylic paint over a mango base coat. It gives the door a glow like old redwood, don't ya think?
