Remember this door? The old wood door that used to be the original front door to my house? From my "I painted my 1930s wood trim" post??
I was going to remove it and replace it with a cool door that I've been packing around forever, but there's this room on Pinterest that keeps popping up and every time I see it I think "oh yeah baby"!!
I adore this entire room... but I'll settle for the door (I'm still trying to figure out why a stack of towels is necessary in the living room, but heck, I say go for it if it makes you happy!)
So out comes the paint AGAIN! I think when I'm finally done this house, I am going to take a good, long break from paint.
I washed the door down with TSP and primed it with Zinsser's Cover Stain primer (oil based). I was so excited to see the aqua, I'm glad it only took 1 hour for the primer to dry before I could start painting! Love, love, love this colour!!!!
So much better now!!!!
And while I had the primer out, I also finished priming the trim in my hallway. And because I primed the trim, I went ahead and painted the trim & the walls & the ceiling - the hall looks like it was hosed down with my special blend coffee cream paint!! Well, ok, so I didn't do the ceiling, but it felt like I did!
|Yes, there's Eloise again, always trying to get in the photos.|
Oh and btw, that thing on the floor of the far doorway is Maggie's tail. I wanted to get that straight before a certain "dust bunnies are the next pet rock" friend of mine decided to pounce on it as a major money maker...
Hmmmm looking at that kitchen of mine now... watch out cabinets! Here I come!
lol - I think I may need a paint intervention. Or a holiday away from home. Yeah, a holiday away from home, somewhere with a beach. Who's in?? We could have a 4-day vacation convention with no rules and no presentations and no formalities, just a "let's all hang out in person" convention. On a beach. With fruity drinks. And cabana boys...
Have a fabulous week!
