Catching Up!

The weeks have been flying by around here lately and I've been working on a lot of little projects around the house. Winter will soon be here so my spray painting days have come to an end for now but I'll be back at it in the spring! This past Monday through Wednesday we were in the 60's here which is unseasonably warm for this time of year. I had Mr.A install our new front door with the help of my dad and so when the nice temps were here I decided to quick throw some paint on the door before winter. Trying to pick a paint color was too much stress so I just grabbed a color and regreted the decision as soon as he started mixing it. Oh well, at least the door has some paint on it and I can repaint it in the spring. What's the old saying, Haste makes waste? So true.
I also purchased some black paint so I could paint a coffee table I found on Craigslist for a mere $10. I don't have a before picture but it was a reddish brown with a big old red circle on the top where some nailpolish spilled and they tried to take it off with nail polish remover. Nothing a little paint couldn't fix and I like that the legs have a little character to them. Here it is how it looks now.

I also used the black paint to paint the back of my entry doors. Here are the doors and of course I don't have a before. sigh. I also need to purchase some more trim paint so I can paint the pieces that need to go around the front door and touch up the spots on the back door that I somehow managed to get black paint on. I even used painters tape this time! I usually like to play it dangerous and see if I can paint without taping.

The front door which Mr.A just installed.

This is the side/back door which has our little mud room area.

I'll post some more stuff in the next few days. I'm off to bed soon, had a busy but refreshing weekend away with Mr.A and no children!!!


  1. How beautiful. I love the design of the coffee table. Is the color on your back entry door black too?

  2. Thanks! The back door is also black, I really like it because it won't show the dirty yuck that always ends up on my doors from children and the dog.


Thank You for your comment, I love to hear from you!
