Every summer I have a "summer to-do" list that Nick and I write in June. It's almost like a resolution list in a way because we write down short term projects and habits we would like to accomplish in the two and a half months before school begins again. This summer was no different and amidst my list of 9 tasks written...I completed #7 just the other day...painting our front door. (#8 and #9 on my list...scrapbooking trips we've taken and painting/decorating Noah's new room will have to be pushed until the fall...Think I bit off more than I can chew with this summer's list :-)
BEFORE: Our door was a dull light blue/gray color
AFTER: Plum is totally me...and I think very welcoming! :-)
It's always amazing to me what a little paint, elbow grease, and time can do to a home. I kept putting this off and putting this off...but in only a matter of three hours I had a new front door with updated white trim as well. And the best feeling of all...crossing this off the list.
