So, three years ago, I purchased a lovely shade of Dark Spruce Green paint to repaint my shutters and front door. It has sat in the garage for three years – waiting. Just waiting. For the weather to be perfect, for me to fix the cracks in the door, for who knows what. It never happened.
Today, I decided I was going to ACCOMPLISH something. FlyLady has been sending me the emails and I was finally ready to tackle a “big” job. So I stopped by the Ace Hardware to purchase wood putty. Took it home and fixed the cracks. Then painted my door! It looks incredible, if I do say so myself (feel free to comment and say so yourselves).
This is the finished door:
I actually like the black metal door – I would like to repaint it, but I’m not sure yet on what to use. I’ll work on that.
Cookie helped by killing the wasps (about 25-30) that had made a next behind one of the shutters. I’ll be removing two shutters and repainting the other six the same Dark Spruce Green.
It may take me a month, but I refuse to feel guilty, because in the end – by Christmas I’ll have brand new paint on my door and shutters! And my house will look awesome from the street.
