I don't know what it is about this house, but there are a few lingering projects that I was CERTAIN that we were going to take on immediately after moving in, but somehow are still holding out. It took us well over two years to tackle the Cat Closet Door, and we are still himming and hawing on the Master Bedroom
HolesWindows. But the most shameful, should have done it sooner, project is our bright purple door.
So finally, on a nice day with the kiddos in bed for nap, it was door painting time. I started by removing the hardware, washing and even lightly sanding the door where purple paint drips threatened my sanity.
I like to first use a brush to fill in the details of the panels, and then immediately follow with a 4" microfiber roller on the spaces around it. In this case, with 15 panels, I attacked a couple of rows at a time.
When it was done, maybe 20 minutes and $3 test pot later, I felt like an idiot for hating my front door for 3 years and not doing anything about it.

Come on knock on my door...
And now this view of the stairs is much more palatable.
Anyone else tackle a long awaited project recently? Am I the only one that stares at bad paint for 3 years without changing it? Let's not dwell, it's pretty now. Right?
