The Small Project Series

Do you ever start a project but never finish it because it’s so small? I do. All. The. Time. I can tackle big projects like there’s no tomorrow. Paint a dresser? Colorblock my dining room? Done and done, but cut and stain a piece of trim for my kitchen desk? Not done. Not done at all.

So today I’m starting a new series call the Small Project Series and first up is my front door. . . . the back of my front door to be exact. If you’ll remember I painted my front door and then it sat in the garage for a few months waiting to be fitted and hung. In the meantime we painted the living room and well, the colors were too blue – too close for my taste.

We also replaced the locks so the old holes needed to be filled and sanded.Painted Door 2So this week, nearly 2 months later, I busted out the paint and got this small project done.
