...I remember that game show so well. With Monty Hall as the host and all the contestants dressed up in their most imaginative outfits, deal or no deal, and finally at the end, the three doors. What awaits the winner behind door number 1, number 2 or door number 3? I was always quite inept at picking the correct door ending up with a years supply of chicken soup or a frying pan. Do you remember?
Recently, at the height of my 'duffiness,' I began to notice our front door. Blah, blue. Nothing wrong with blue but it was painters grade fifteen years ago and was starting to look rather shabby. So I did what every DIY (in her mind) girl does and perused all the wonderful home improvement blogs that I could find. Oh my, that it itself is a post for another day! Such talent and beauty as far as the eye can see. But, I digress....
I wanted something different, something no one else in the neighborhood had, something bold, that screamed "that nut J lives there!" And well, well...what do you think?
old tired blue door begging for a make-over
first of two coats of primer. And then after three coats of paint and another coat of a different colour paint we have:
a YELLOW front door. Technically it is called "Squash Blossom" by Dutch Boy. It has the primer built in but It wasn't enough to cover the blue. Not only that but this job was done by me...on my duff, with a paint stick in hand and the help of a sponge brush. (Oh yeah, and I totally remembered to take the making tape off around the lock.)
