Summer Projects

  For the last few weeks I have been wishing for the school year to end so that this exhaused teacher could have a little break. Now that it is finally here, I just can’t seem to relax. When I am busy I crave a day to just sit on the couch and watch movies, and once that opportunity presents itself, I just can’t do it. Yesterday I woke up when my husband left for work and turned on HGTV. I saw an episode where they painted the inside of someone’s front door to add some warmth, color, and depth. For some reason….at 6:30 am….I decided that my door needed a new paint job too.  Here is what the door looked like about two years ago as our renovations came to an end.

  I had a can of Annie Sloan chalk paint in CoCo that I had intended on using on a previous project, but never did. I thought the color would make the door stand out and give some warmth to small foyer area. I forgot to take a before picture, but here it is soon after I started.

It took about three coats of paint before it was finally done.  I have to admit that about half way through the door project I asked myself why I continue to create projects for myself rather than relaxing. The end result is always worth it though, and this project had a little bonus. A mama bird’s little eggs hatched in the a nest on the wreath right outside our door. I got to listen to their sweet little chirps all morning long!

   My husband said he is going to tie me up before he leaves for work every morning because everytime he comes home there is a new project going on. He is right! I just can’t stay away. Off to refinish some end tables for a friend!
