I’m back! I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted (4 month’s!), a lot was going on in outside of home improvements. I was searching for a new job – which any of you who have done this can attest to – is like a full time job in and of itself. So the majority of my free time outside of work was spent looking for new work. Plus it was a frozen tundra in Connecticut pretty much through March which makes me just want to stay inside and hibernate – which we did with the free time we had.
I’m pleased to say we’ve thawed out (it was 80 out this past Saturday!), and I’ve started at a new job. I’m hoping I can get back to posting at a somewhat regular schedule.
Yeah… that was a learning experience in choosing paint colors. The yellow lasted through the entire winter of 2013/2014 as I had painted it the last warm weekend of the year. Come Spring 2014 the builder replaced the door and we were back to basic primer white. Well we finally picked out a new color over the winter and it was warm enough to get it done I used the same technique I highlighted here, so here we go…
Still a bright fun color. Here’s a close-up of the completed door:
And a view of the whole house:
So what do you think? Do you like it, is it better than the yellow? I’d love to hear your opinion – love it or hate it! Currently we’re liking it and are looking forward to seeing how it looks once we have some plantings out front.
On the agenda for this spring is having a paver walkway and flower beds installed out front which should bring some additional color and life the yard.
