Remember my new garage door posted a few posts ago ( I still love it Matt with Accudoor! It’s like driving a cadillac – it glides so smoothly and quietly!).
I knew when I replaced it that I would want to add some touches to the front of the house to tie it all together. While I would love to buy a solid wood door to go with my new wood grain garage door, my budget says, “WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!?!? You have a perfectly good door! No WAY, Josea!” My budget can be pretty sarcastic and downright abusive at times! So, I bought a quart of paint and went from shiny black…..
…..to semi gloss brown.
I really like to paint but I HATE to prep.
I’m a pretty good trimmer so I usually trim around hardware and other stuff, but I know that’s the lazy way to do it. This time I thought I would try a tip I saw on Pinterest. It suggested you wrap Saran Wrap around the hardware and it coats the parts you want to keep paint from.
I wish I could report it a major success, but, no, it didn’t work well. I couldn’t get it to cling enough to keep the paint off. In fact, it started falling off and making a huge mess.
Next time I’ll get the blue tape out and do it the right way!
I do like the shade of brown though- nice little update for a quart of paint that cost less than $10.00. Now, maybe a Craftsman style door knocker….
…or possibly update with a light fixture…
On another front and project update, I found the buffalo check curtains for the dining room and was thrilled that the panels were on sale! The only problem, I need one more panel and they sold out of the 96 inch ones. I keep checking online and may need to come up with Plan B! I’ll show you when they’re finished.
I hope y’all have a great week, and keep on smiling like little Murphy:
